What works for my Iomega Zip 100 is
insmod parport_pc.o io=378 irq=7
I am not sure about the the Zip Plus. I think it should work with
insmod imm instead of ppa

Subject: [ILUG] Zip Drive problem
I have got this working on 2.0.36 boxes but for some
reason it will not working for me today.
I am trying to get an external Zip Plus drive working off a
I have SCSI support and SCSI disk support enabled I have the
SCSI low level drivers for both the Zip and Zip Plus drives
compiled as modules. There is no lp support in the kernel.
I have been trying the following:
insmod parport (parallel port module)
insmod imm (Zip module)
But I keep getting imm.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
(Yes the Zip drive was connected and powered on at the time, also
there was a disk in the drive)
I have read through the relevant sections of the ZIP - HowTo but
could not find anything.
Can anyone think what I am missing out. I know I have solved it before
but I have got to one of those forest for the trees points.
Sorry Kernel version is 2.2.12-20 (latest update for RH6.1)
