esp0 i would suspect is the scsi controller 0, from this i would
hazard a guess that your ZIP drive is a scsi one?? it would seem that
the scsi selection process, of which i have the larger part of no
understanding, is not working. do you have your scsi id's set up
properly? (ie no conflicts) that would be my first guess, then check
the cables for bad connections etc. after that try a new zip drive
(borrow one from someone). try possibly using a zip disk that was
formatted on a x86 box using a windows type format (ie 16 bit FAT).
p.s. or better still mail the m68k linux mailing list and ask there.
