It doesn't appear that I can mount my internal zip drive from either bay.
I'm using gdr's 2.2.10 off of (http://gdr.free.fr/linux.html).
bash-2.03# dmesg |grep -i zip
hdc: IOMEGA MAC ZIP 100 MAC ATAPI, ATAPI CDROM drive
bash-2.03# mount -t hfs /dev/hdc /zip
mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
or too many mounted file systems
I've tried it in both the left (hde) and right (hdc) bays.
Since it's a mac formatted zip disk it should mount up as hfs file system.
Is there support in the 2.2.10 kernel for this or am I doing something
I also backed out and testing it with the "Very Stable G3 laptop" kernel
from the CD which is 2.2.1 and I get the same error.
