    Maybe others have had better luck with the IDE Zip as IDE
    Floppy configuration; I've had no luck at all with it -
    including several kernel hangs in the ext2fs code (but
    not related to ext2fs - related to the IDE Floppy API
    and it's mismatch with the Zip drive functionality). I've
    also seen several FAQs stating that using ide-scsi is the
    best way to get an IDE Zip working reliably.

    Meanwhile, it does work fine with the IDE code running
    my hard drive(s) and CD-ROM, and the ide-scsi running the
    Zip. The only nuisance is the need to manually do an
    'insmod scsi_mod; insmod ide-scsi' in the startup files.
    I had to exclude the IDE Floppy code from the kernel/modules.
