Solution to failed ZIP drive install The BIOs setting was the fault.
I cleared it by disabling the BIOs internal motherboard settings and installing a printer card that I set to run at IRQ 7 - 0278 . This brought up the zip drive with no problem. Then I removed the card and reset the internal motherboard back to IRQ 7 and 0378. This brought up the zip drive with no problem. I did set also the BIOs to EPP.
