is called by hald. I tried commands in a terminal but received a
message to the effect that fstab-sync was nowhere to be found.

So, does anyone know the fix?
The executable for fstab-sync is in /usr/sbin which is not typically on
your path unless you are logged in as root. You can get rpm to show you
where the various parts of a package such as hal are installed:
rpm -qil hal
As far as your question about correctly mounting the zip drive, check
out the following URL. It doesn't address exactly your issue, but it
should get you pointed in the right direction.
That combined with the section of the output from 'lshal' pertinent to
your zip drive should give an idea of what needs to happen.
