In my case (it is an external paralell por unit):

modprobe imm
mount /media/zip
fdisk -p /dev/sda
nimrodel:~ # fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 64 heads, 32 sectors, 239 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 239 244735+ 83 Linux


My fstab has this entries (carried from suse 7.3):

/dev/sda1 /media/zip auto defaults,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/sda4 /media/zip2 auto defaults,noauto,user,exec 0 0
