Do you mean the Power Supply Unit? Or the Program Storage Unit? ;-)

To answer to your questions:
- I haven't tried to remove the CD-ROM because both devices shall work
together
- the ZIP doesn't cause problems when just the power cable is connected

Although my PC has only got an old Baby AT 200W power supply I don't think
that's the point.
