Hi,
I have Iomega Zip drive 100MB install at secondary slave.
When I tried to mount it using

>>> mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/zip

in KNoppix, it gives me an error message saying that incorrect filesystem. If anybody knows solution, please help me.

Thanks a lot!!!

For some reason you have to use /dev/sda4 (the fourth partition) as the device.

I had forgotten this, but during a rescue boot-up today, knoppix saw the zip disk in the drive and I saw the info in dmesg. If you don't have a disk in the drive knoppix tries and tries to find the device and can't.

HTH
