A ZIP disk has a fat(32) partition at /dev/hdX4 by default which is a
little strange, you can create an ext3 filesystem on them (even directly
on /dev/hdX, without a partition table). If you try that it will most
likely work. You can't access them in Windows after that of course.
But I think it's a bug. HAL/udev? should detect the (fat) partitions on
the disk after insertion, even if hdX1 through hdX3 don't exist, and
work without a problem.
Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
