I'd recommend going through the -questions mail archives on
http://www.freebsd.org and search for 'jaz'.  There has been quite a bit
of discussion on the Jaz (and the Zip, which is very similiar).  You may
find something of use.

Note that the Jaz and Zip don't support the 'mode sense' command so the
system has to make up a geometry, which may or may not be correct.
