Try putting a disk in the ZIP drive, and see if that helps. You may
also want to take a look in /var/log/dmesg to see what the system
says about the drive on bootup. It is possible that the new code is
not handling removable IDE drives, or that it does not assign a
drive letter until there is a disk in the drive.

It is possible that when you put a disk in the drive, it will get
auto-mounted to the desktop. If not, you can try booting with a disk
in the drive, and see if that helps - this will help with the bug
