Hmmm .....    cool, but there's really no reason to have both a SCSI
LS-120 and a SCSI ZIP.  Matter of fact, I can't remember the last time I
used my existing ZIP drive.  I used to use it for sneakernet between
home and the office when I only had dial-up at home, but now I have no
office, and with only one ZIP drive in the house (and that one internal)
it's not even useful for sneakernet.

I've occasionally considered assembling a really comprehensive rescue
disk on a ZIP, but I've never gotten around to it.
