/etc/fstab has to match the actual device position on the secondary

only if the disk inserted was partitioned, as opposed to being formatted
as a large floppy, which is the more usual case with zip disks. If the
zip drive is the only device on the cable, then it must be jumpered as a
master, and it would then be /dev/hdc.

Oh how pain meds can clog the brain. Forgot that the drive wasn't jumpered at all. Jumpering it to master and changing the dev identifier to hdc did the trick.
