Yes, it is.

If you don't already own a Jaz, don't buy one.  They're expensive,
unreliable, utterly fucked pieces of shit.  Iomega can die.  You can
quote me on that.

I've lost three drives and ten disks since 1997.  I don't even use the
fucking thing anymore, haven't relied on it for three years.

Buy an additional hard drive an install Debian on this.  Set your
bootmanager to find it or use a boot floppy.  You'll be far more
satisfied.

Peace.
