I too have a Zip Drive.  I don't think that Zip Drives would be compatible
in the UNIX environment because to run Zip Drives, you need special
drivers/extensions.  There are none that I know of for BSD.  I wonder if
there are drivers for BSD and I just don't know about them.

Kevin, your answer to the question was not a good answer.  I hear this from
people on newsgroups all the time:  Q: "Will _____ be coming out for
Macintosh sometime soon?"  A: "Macs suck!  Get a PC!"  Try to answer so
that the guy doesn't have to go out and get a new piece of hardware.
