NOT tested on IDE Jaz drive

Jaz drives are SCSI, even when connected to the parallel port. Therefore, your kernel must have support for the correct SCSI card either compiled into the kernel, or compiled as a module.

There is a truly excellent GUI for handling Jaz/Zip drives. You can download it at*. Note that it needs XForms (available from*) installed.

  1. Extract the JaZip program
  2. Append "-I/usr/X11R6/include" to the CFLAGS line in the Makefile
  3. Compile and install the program
  4. Create a mount-point for the device
  5. Edit /etc/jazip.conf so it looks something like
  6. Load the gui tool
