zip drives and my stupidity.

In the last few days I have been asking about two problems I was
having with my zip drives:
1. I was having trouble formatting and accessing my external zip drive
and mounting from device /dev/sda4
2. My internal zip drive on another machine could not seem to produce
zip disk that my external zip drive cold read.

After much hair pulling and advice form people on the list I solved
these problems and exposed my ability to do stupid things. The answer
to both problems were contained in the following simple concept
partition tables. Once I created a partition table for sda with an
entry only for sda4 and realized that the internal zip drive should
be made access hdd4 all went well.

Now that you all know the secret and can laugh at the stupidity of one
other, everyone can be happy.
