Get a PCI SCSI card (not included with SCSI Zip drives). Use Iomega?ip
Zoom SCSI accelerator or another SCSI card.
2. Shut down the computer.
3. Leave the computer plugged into the surge suppressor.
4. Disconnect all peripherals from the computer.
5. Remove the chassis cover.
6. Ground yourself to computer with any professional grounding equipment
you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching a metal part of
the computer chassis.

it into position if necessary.
11. Replace the computer's cover.
12. Reconnect the monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
13. Connect the SCSI cable to the new SCSI port on your computer
(each end of the cable is different). Connect the other end of cable
to the input SCSI port on the Zip drive. Securely tighten hand screws
on both ends.
14. If the Zip drive is not internally terminated (check the documentation
that came with the drive), connect a SCSI terminator to the drive.
15. Connect the external power supply to the Zip drive and surge
suppressor. Push the power cord into the groove on the right side

If you have a SCSI scanner or other SCSI device, you won?eed to
install another SCSI card. Connect the Zip drive to the back of
your other SCSI device instead of directly to the computer. Make
sure that you give each device a unique SCSI ID number.
A SCSI terminator must be attached to the last device in a SCSI
chain if the device isn't internally terminated. No other device
in the chain can include a terminator. If you're connecting more
than one SCSI device, make sure that only the last one is terminated.
If you're only connecting the Zip drive, make sure it's terminated.
