ZIP drives

I have recently recompiled the kernel on my laptop to include support for a
ZIP drive.

The problem is that I can't mount a disc.

When I look at /var/log/messages I see the following:
da0 at vp0 bus 0 target 6 lun 0
da0: <IOMEGA ZIP 100 J.03> Removable Direct Access SCSI-2 device
da0: 96MB (196608 512 byte sectors : 64H 32S/T 96C)
This appears to be correct

ls -l /dev/da0 gives me brw-r-----, is this correct

The mount command gives me a variety of error messages such as device not
configured, incorrect super block.

Can anyone help ?

regards
andrew dennis.
