I'm trying to connect my iomega zip 100 to my linux box and the ZIP-HOW-TO I found on zip drives says that I should do a "insmod ppa" before I attempt to compile the kernel. I guess the module necesary to attach the zip drive may already be compiled into my kernel? And this instruction might help me determine that? I contacted this list before and got some great suggestions, can some one help me again? I did do a search on "insmod" which didn't return any matches. I also downloaded a kernel utility package called "modutils_2_1_121-18.deb". Is this the right package (which contains insmod)?
Thanks for helping a NEWBIE :)
