Internal Zip drives work a little differently; on all disks I
had changed the partition with Linux fdisk, whether to 1 or 4,
I had to mount /dev/sda, which meant I could save an fstab
entry. The disk that came with my external drive needed to
have the partition number specified when mounting, though.
In other words, internal Zip is handled like a floppy.
mkdosfs or mke2fs /dev/sda is all it takes to format it.
(I suspect fdisk is really unnecessary)
The people handling the different drivers should really do
something about this inconsistency. Internal Zip is always
handled like an internal SCSI unit, while parport Zip is like
a world of its own.
