It depends on how the zip disk was formatted. By default most are
formatted as hard disk and use the 4th partition (hdX4). But you can
also format them as super floppy (hdX) or use the first partition
(hdX1).

Except if you use zips discs for interchanging files with other systems.

However, I think that the reason the device file is deleted every boot, as some seem to report, should be worth investigating.
