Important: Be sure there's a Zip disk in the drive when you start the machine!

My machine here won't recognize the drive on startup unless there's a disk
in it.
Overall, I like the Zip drives, but they can be difficult to set up; I've
had more trouble making the SCSI cards work than making the drives
themselves work. All of it can be tricky. The nice thing is that they seem
to keep working once you get them to work in the first place.
