Not tricky at all.  Definitely get the HOWTO, though, as Henry
suggests (but I snipped).

Yes, it requires that you use SCSI-over-IDE emulation - this is not
hard to set up, and the HOWTO explains in sufficient detail.  This
does mean, though, that if you don't already have the SCSI stuff
compiled into your kernel, you need to add it.  Probably this just
means using appropriate insmods, though.

Mine is an IOMEGA Zip CD-RW.  Just make sure it's on the latest list
of supported drives (or maybe it's just a list of /unsupported/ drives
- I forget)!
