hard to find drivers

finally got a little time to resurrect my dinosaur, again. would like to find if there are any drivers that would work with scsi type zip 100 and jazz drives? Also have an old asus 7100 video/tuner card with 32mb.My mobo is an msi 8514 at/atx type, I'm using an amd 500 cpu with approx. 512 mb ram. Are there any file archives that would allow me to download?

The easiest way would be to upgrade you distribution.

You did not specify which distribution of Linux you are using.

in a Debian based distribution you can use apt-get

As root run
apt-get update | apt-get upgrade

Regarding the zip 100 drive, it should work with recent kernels provided you load the proper module. The parallel port version should work with the ppa (older) or the imm (newer) modules. You can test the presence of the modules into your kernel using
modprobe --dry-run -v imm
In my opinion the ZIP 100 drive was a great piece of hardware, supported by linux since the good ol' days of red hat 5.2 (nostalgic) and earlier releases. Kernel 2.2.14 introduced the ZIP support, if I remember well. Regarding the USB version, it should work with the usb_storage module out of the box (you should have it already loaded). More information, here.
