It would help to have some more information. What interface does the
ZIP drive use? (SCSI, IDE, USB) What messages do you get in
/var/log/messages when you put the disk in?

Try removing your changes in /etc/fstab, and see if hte disk gets
mounted in a directory off of /media when you insert the disk.
