Hi, mount -t msdos /dev/da0s4 /nountpoint works fine, thanks, and was able to add the details into /etc/fstab so that the zip can be mounted from the KDE like a CD/DVD. Modifying the /etc/fstsb file also works for the floppy.
/dev/da0s4 /mountpoint msdos rw,noauto /dev/fd0 /mountpoint msdos rw,noauto Thanks for the speedy assistance.

This is what works for me: First make a directory for the zip. I did: mkdir /mnt/zip (which makes the dir /mnt/zip) Then mount it. I do this by changing to root, then mount -t msdos /dev/da0s4 /mnt/zip then I navigate (command line or graphical) to /mnt/zip and do what needs to be done. I'm not sure if FAT is how my Iomega 250meg usb zip is formated, but I think it is. Give it a try.
