semi-ot: are zip drives being phased out?

Two issues to consider:

1. parallel port connector (T2K uses a DIP header -- need to make special
	cable).
2. software (T2K ended with DOS 2.11.xx -- forget exact number). You would
	need to check minimum required version for Iomega guest.exe program.

If you are just trying to connect a ZIP drive to a T2K, why not use a
parallel port model?
