Description djones 1999-09-19 22:49:27 UTC
I was using one of the 2 cent tips to help me set up my IDE ATAPI iomega Zip drive. The very first step references a kernal option, CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI. Being a relative novice at linux, I was wondering if to enable this option, is this within lilo.conf? Or is this within some other place. I had no luck finding this on my RH 6.0 linux system. After working with the RH support ( with no luck ), they recommended that I open a issue with 'bugzilla'. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Regards, Darren Jones

All of the kernel options which are necessary to make use of a Iomega Zip drive are compiled into the stock Red Hat Linux kernel, so you should be able to skip any steps referring to recompiling the kernel and specifying kernel options. Pretty much, you should just drop the thing into your system and on boot, the drive will be recognized.

You should also use partition 4. If not, the drive will never work correctly using linux.
