The problem is not in hmount, but in your SCSI adapter/driver or zip disk
itself. If you have a spare zip, try to to create ext2 partition with
fdisk /dev/sda ,
(note that all data on disk will be lost!)
put a filesystem with 
mkfs -t ext2 /dev/sda1       
                     ^--- note 1, not 4. If it was formatted for MAC, then
it would be 4.

and then mount any way you like: either with
mount -t ext2 /dev/sda1 /mnt
or with hmount.
If it doesn't work, the problem is with your adapter, it does not 
support removable media well. I had bad experience with SIIG adapter
which I returned and got BusLogic I have no problems with.
If it works, then either disk was not formatted and partitioned at all
or with some defect.
