-: Iomega makes excellent drives that connect to any PC
-: with a parallel or USB port (you may need to download
-: the drivers from to install on your CD-
-: less PC); carry the driver disk with you when you go.

I've been downloading and archiving DJGPP stuff to a SCSI ZIP 100
connected to my Sun Ultra running Solaris 2.6, then taking the ZIP home
to install packages on the `other' computer.  It was a very convenient
and efficient arrangement.

At least until the recent upgrade to Solaris 2.7---and now the ZIP drive
and the Sun won't talk to each other, and we aren't getting any help
from Iomega or Sun.  If anyone has got a ZIP working under Solaris 2.7,
I'd like to hear from you, privately.
