i'm about to install an internal zip drive in my pc. any recommendations on how i should configure it along with the other devices? right now there's a single hard drive, cd-rom drive and floppy. thanks for responding.

If your hard drive is a UDMA 33 or 66, then I wouldn't put it on the same channel as it. Probably on the secondary channel would be my guess. I've found that some Zip drives like to master and stop responding when made the slave, so i suggest putting it on the secondary as master. Hope this helps.
