Hi
I have a 100 meg zip drive in my box. I added a line to fstab and am able to mount the drive as root or user. I have write access as root but not as user.

How do I give user full access to the zip drive?

I had to partition a zip disc to get access at all..can I only use with linux? on dsl the drive and discs were fine and also worked with windows..so I lost the data on this disc. if I put others in the drive , it repeatedly mounts or something and I am afraid it will burn out the drive. I had to shut down to get the drive to stop and the disc out

OK..thanks
I will put the zip drive back in the dsl box it is auto detected and I have full access as user and root.
I can use a floppy or cd-rw for personal files on vector
