Hi Casey,

First of all, we need to know the hardware you are currently using, as it
seems like that's the source
of the problem. You're onto something with disconnecting your Zip drive, but
you should also try the elimination-method, disconnecting one device, try to
boot, disconnect another and try to boot, etc.
