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
This brought up the zip drive with no problem. I did set also the BIOs
My original problem.

> work on it either.
> snd module installs and works fine BTW on all three boxes.
> The error messages I get are /dev/da0s4 Device not configured.

> I also tried entering /etc/fstab parameters same as the other box
> /dev/da0s4 /zip msdos rw,noauto 0 0
> Suggestions appreciated or point me clearer to a How To. I looked on
> FreeBSD.org and that section is what I follow.
