Hei there...

You definitley CAN'T run a SCSI-device on a IDE-controller.
But You can buy a ZIP-drive for the parallel port. The SCSI-driver for
the ZIP-drive is for the parallel drive, it uses the ZIP-drive as
a SCSI-device, even if You have no SCSI-controller.
The SCSI-version of the ZIP-drive don't need any driver if You have a
SCSI-Controller and compiled the SCSI generic support in Your kernel.
