To use the SCSI zip drive, you will have to add the proper drivers to your kernel and rebuild the kernel.  For more information on this, look at http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html.

For information on ports (how to use the tarballs on disk 3 and 4, how to get the latest ports, etc) take a look at http://www.freebsd.org/ports/
