You may have a problem with privileges. The /etc/fstab shows "owner" not
"user". Are you trying to use the zip drive as a user or as root/su? If
you're trying to us it as a normal user you need to change the /etc/fstab
/dev/hdb4 /mnt/zip auto noauto,user,kudzu 0 0
Also check /dev/hdb4 to ensure the device was created.

Let us know if that doesn't do the trick.
