I am
trying to install a Parallel Port Iomega Zip drive on NT 3.51. I have
downloaded the from the Iomega website the file iomgmt15.exe. Does this
file come with drivers for NT 3.51??? When I run this file it gives an
error saying that I first have to add the SCSI adapters from the Control

Panel. Which drivers do I add? Iomega Zip is not on the list of drivers
in the SCSI Add/Delete option. The NTReadme.txt file says that I should
find a Iomega Adapter in the list!!!!!!!

Chose the option that you have a Disk witht the driver.. then point to the direcotry where you have unzipped the IOMEGA files... However paralell devices under NT isnt really a good way to go... but give it a try.. it works for some :)

The driver you need to add under SCSI adapters is the Iomega ZIP/PPA3 driver.  After running the initial setup of the Iomega drivers it should appear in the list of SCSI adapters you can view from the Windows NT Setup program in program manager.  A bit of warning though, keep the zip disk out of the drive when you reboot NT, otherwise NT will attempt to chkdsk the drive everytime you reboot - and those ZIP drives aren't very fast.  Also your CPU utilization will be at 100% almost on long reads from the ZIP drive.  

* To make the drivers for the Iomega adapter appear, you can also  try selecting the have disk/other driver option in NT setup under SCSI adapters.  (Scroll through the list; it should be at the bottom.)  Then when it asks for a directory, try having a directory where all the uncompressed files are for the Iomega tools, and it should pick it up.
