Yes, that's what I would expect with 2.2 kernels, as in the
HOWTO that Gregory quoted. But I presume that without modules,
you have to make sure that the zip drive is present when you
boot. Or can you use any of the scsiutils to get round this?

I'm not sure what is indicated to do with the modules, or if it is indeed necessary; any more details available? :-)

I use Debian 2.1R4, is this a 2.2 kernel?
My boot time dmesg says:
