Installing Linux on ZIP disk using ppa ZIP Drive Mini-Howto: Disclaimer Next Previous Contents

1. Disclaimer

NOTE: I have no idea if the IDE drive works the same way as the printer port version does since I don't have one, so please don't ask me.

The Debian install portion was basically just copied with little or no editing by this author. As such, there may be some duplication of instructions.

This document assumes the following:

  • You have a printer port ZIP drive (since the ZIP Plus has both, I assume that it will work as well.)
  • You already have Linux installed and running; this document is not for a first time install of Linux.
  • You have ppa support in your current kernel or if module, the ppa module has been loaded.
  • The mount point for the ZIP disk is the /iomega directory.
