The fact that you want to use a zip drive is a mattor of support being
compiled in your kernel for that device. To mount you should specify the
filesystem, source device and mount point.
I don't have a zip drive, but I do have an orb---somewhat similar. My orb
is a scsi device and gets /dev/sda5 as it's the only scsi drive on my
portable. At the office I have a scsi hard disk and a scsi orb, so my orb
at the office becomes /dev/sdb5. The mount point, of course, is whatever
directory you want the filesystem from that media to show up in. So, I
have /mnt/orb for that.
Thus, if my orb is formatted with the linux ext2 filesystem, I might say:
mount -t ext2 /dev/sda5 /mnt/orb
Or, if it's FAT32 (for some silly reason), at the office I would say:
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb5 /mnt/orb
