zip mediume question ?


once again a little help needed...

the powermac 9600 I'm setting up, has an internal zip drive located on
/dev/sdc (as told by dmesg, see relevant part bellow.)

at boot time when there is no zip in the drive, dmesg complains
about "READ CAPACITY failed" and kernel is assuming that "lock size
assumed to be 512 bytes, disk size 1GB." humm I would like that my zip
drive could be used as jaz drives ;-))

why the zip drive, removable disk, is tested while there is no medium
is there a way to correct/enhance this.

	Thank's again


 donc, si tu n'en a rien à foutre tu ne lis pas les mess qui ne te sont
 pas adressés, c'est le problème de poster sur plusieurs forums, tu
 parles au charcutier, et c'est la saucisse qui te répond :-)"
