I don't know if this helps, but many years ago I used Iomega 100MB on the
parallel port, and if I may remember correctly the SCSI subsystem is what
took care of it. So I had to load the SCSI modules and so on.

Maybe you have to load one or more modules if it does not automatically.

Execute 'dmesg' and see if there is any output telling about the parallel
port or the Zip drive.

Also execute 'lsmod' and paste here the result.
