Description john.wiersba 1998-12-09 15:01:05 EST
After doing a warm reboot into Linux from Win95, my IDE
zip drive takes 5-10 minutes to eject after pressing the
eject button.  This happens even though I don't use the zip
drive from Win95.  Seems to be no problem after a cold boot
into linux.

This sounds like some sort of compatibility between Win95
and linux, where Win95 sets the zip drive into a state (even
when the zip drive isn't used under Win95) which linux isn't
expecting.  I don't know if you guys can do anything about
this (like forcing the zip drive into a clean state
during boot up).  Just thought you should know...

As a result of incompatibility with Windows and therefore we cannot
really affect an changes.
