    Problems with internal ZIP 100.

    Hi all,

    I'm running Mandrake 8.1 and I'm having a problem with my internal ZIP 100 drive. Following are the settings in my /etc/fstab:

    /dev/hda5 / jfs defaults 1 1
    none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,exec,codepage=850,ro,noauto 0 0
    /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,exec,codepage=850,ro,noauto 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,exec,codepage=850,noauto 0 0
    /dev/hdb4 /mnt/zip auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,exec,codepage=850,noauto 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0



    Following is the error I receive when I try to access the drive:

    [chad@mandrake1 chad]$ su
    Password:
    [root@mandrake1 chad]# mount /mnt/zip
    mount: special device /dev/hdb4 does not exist
    [root@mandrake1 chad]#

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    /dev/hda5 / jfs defaults 1 1
    You are using IBM's journaling filesystem, how well does it work?

    /dev/hdb4 /mnt/zip auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,exec,codepage=850,noauto 0 0

    mount: special device /dev/hdb4 does not exist
    Are you sure hdb4 is correct? Check /var/log/messages to make sure.

    I know drake 8.1 enabled devfs by default, this might be the problem. devfs is definitely "bleeding edge" I don't know why those choose to use it yet. You might try booting with devfs disabled and see if it cures the problem.
