I got my kenel to recognize the USB Zip Drive.  Now I
need to make a new block device for it.  man mknod
means nothing to me though.

Has anybody used mknod?

I think it should go something like

mknod /dev/usbzip0 b MAJOR MINOR  

What should the values for MAJOR and MINOR be?

I hacked the kernel a little too to get it to compile.
:)  I feel like such a geek.
