Thanks for the reply. I've installed Redhat 9 thru Fedora 10 on this machines 
with no issues with the ZIP disk. The Zip is set to not installed in the BIOS, 
but the 98, XP, and Fedora had no problem seeing it after boot. Not sure 
why it is even looking at the disk. I choose to install using the exist linux 
partitions, so why the partition section was looking at the zip at all, and why it 
would result in a fatal error.
