linux & windows


Can linux read files downloaded in windows and saved to zip250.

The reason I ask is I have a high speed link at work where I can download large files to my laptop, then transfer them to zip and onto my Mandrake 6.1

well i don't know about mandrake 6.1 (is it really 6.1?? that's Ooooooooooold), but there's no reason to not be able to read a zip drive. have you not got it set up on the system? what interface does it have? if it's an ide interface, then you'd just have:

/dev/hdc1 /mnt/zip vfat defaults

in /etc/fstab, then just mount it with

mount /mnt/zip

and the data should be there.

I actually had no end of problems with my Atapi (IDE) Zip250...all because of one little bloody line!

In order to use your disk properly (i.e. without things ballsing up big time), then put hdx=ide-scsi in the append section of your lilo.conf file (obviously substituting hdx for the correct one). You'd then need to mount /dev/sda4 rather than /dev/hdx4. Seriously, though. Mandy 6.1 is getting a little out-dated.
