When trying to mount the zip drive from a shell with command 
mount /mnt/zip the system hangs. When booting with a disk in the zip drive the following output is given:

ide-floppy driver 0.99.ide

hdb: 244736kB,239/64/32 CHS, 4096kBps, 512 sector size, 2941rpm
hdb: The disk reports a capacity of 250640384 bytes, but the drive only handles 250609664 bytes

System hangs at this point in the boot process.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2004-03-06 04:55:15 UTC
Please try the latest kernels from FC development and see if this is
fixed.  We are currently at kernel-2.6.3-2.1.238.

Comment 2 Eric N. Ebert 2004-03-07 00:58:21 UTC
I tested this against kernel 2.6.3-2.1.240smp and I have the same
problem as above. 

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-03-07 08:35:46 UTC
Please test the same non-SMP kernel of the same version and report back.

Comment 4 Eric N. Ebert 2004-03-07 14:33:22 UTC
Tested the non-SMP kernel and got the same problem.

Comment 5 Warren Togami 2004-04-17 10:41:14 UTC
Please test 2.6.5-1.326 which will probably be the test3 kernel.  If
that does not work please search LKML if other people are having
similar problems.

Has this worked on any previous version of Fedora Core or Red Hat Linux?

Comment 6 Alan Cox 2004-05-03 20:54:09 UTC
My ide-floppy device (CLICK rather than ZIP) is working with test3.

Comment 7 Jef Spaleta 2004-05-06 02:10:34 UTC
my zip100 ide device is working in test3  2.6.5-350 kernel which i
just updated to.  
Booted with zip disk in place and without
from commandline and from gnome desktop

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-07 03:29:13 UTC
Closing as fixed in test3.  Please reopen if its still broken for you.
