Subject2.6.12.5 ATAPI Iomega Zip100 problem, more info, solved?

Some more info on removable media oddness. I use both vfat and ext2
format zip disk. Two mountpoints:

/dev/hdc4 /mnt/zip vfat noauto,user 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/zip2 ext2 noauto,user 0 0

Odd behaviour:

$ mount /mnt/zip
mount: /dev/hdc4 is not a valid block device

Yet at this point fdisk can access the zip disk. On the other hand an ext2
formatted zip disk works as expected with "mount /mnt/zip2"

Making ide_floppy a module avoids this odd behaviour.
