Depends on the zip drive.  If you have an IDE zip drive, you
use the corresponding /dev/hd?? device (hd[a-d]#)  If its a
SCSI zip drive, you'll mount it as /dev/sd??.  Just treat it
like a hard drive.

The filesystem can be whatever you want it to be.  You can use
mke2fs to make ext2 partitions on those zip disks, or simply
mount -t msdos to access an existing preformatted one.
