I'm not sure what you mean by mounting a drive. The mount(8)
utillity can mount partitions containing some sort of file
system, not drives. I can't see any reason why one should
not be able to mount a partition on a ZIP-medium, assuming
that the low-level driver recognizes the drive.

If the medium has not been initialised yet, run disklabel(8)
to partition the medium, and run newfs(8) on each partition.

There's an inews in the INN package.

This question pops up ;-) very frequently in comp.mail.sendmail
and other comp.mail groups.
