Hi all.

In one of his earlier posts regarding ide-scsi emulation, Kerry had mentioned that one could disable ide-atapi floppy support, and run one's ide zip drive as an ide-scsi emulated drive.

If I understand correctly, this would allow one to do a number of things, including being able to use ziptools.

Could someone please expand on what doors of opertunity would be opened to one if one used ide-scsi emulation for a zip drive instead of ide-atapi floppy support?

Also, what does this ziptools package contain, and where can one get it from?
I tried looking at the man page for "ziptools", but couldn't find a man page by that name.

Thanks in advance.
