 | I'd like to format my ZIP disk to BSD fs. My ZIP drive works correctly
 |under FreeBSD-2.1.5-RELEASE(I'll update it soon to 2.2) with my DOS
 |formatted ZIP disks, although it keeps reporting while booting that it has
 |to use fictious geometry, because ZIP doesn't give any. What I'd like to
 |know if I can format it without problems. Under DOS and it's buddies --
 |WinNT and WinTOYEARSAGO -- I have to use Iomega's special formatter
 |utility. And just one more question: Is there any release date for
 |FreeBSD-3.0?

You may want to repost your second question.  The people that know might
not read this message since the Subject only mentions ZIPs.

Regarding UFS on ZIP disks, here's a short script that'll do the trick.
Supports creating sliced (my pref) as well as "dangerously dedicated" UFS
disks.  Note: assumes FreeBSD >= 2.2.  If you want an script that works
with older versions, just mail me.

Also attached are my ZIP fstab entries and setuid mountzip and umountzip
scripts.
