       jazip.conf - jazip(1) configuration file.


       The  /etc/jazip.conf  file lists the Jaz and Zip devices that users are
       allowed to mount and unmount using jazip, along with the  mount  points
       used by jazip for each device.

       If  you  have  more  than  one  drive  on your system, you can create a
       separate entry in the configuration file for each one, and then specify
       the  raw  device  name of the drive you want to use on the command line
       when you invoke jazip.  If no device name is given on the command line,
       jazip  will  use  the settings in the first entry of /etc/jazip.conf by


       The format of the jazip.conf file should  be  mostly  self-explanatory.
       Each line looks like:

       /dev/sda /zip auto auto 0 0

       The  first  entry  is  the  raw  SCSI  device  name of your drive (e.g.
       /dev/sda without a partition number ).  The second entry is  the  mount
       point you wish to use (e.g.  /zip ).  The additional entries:

       auto auto 0 0

       are  required  but  are not user-changeable.  They are required because
       jazip uses standard system call to do mounting  and  they  expect  this

       The  type  of  filesystem  (e.g.   vfat or ext2 ) will be automatically
       detected by jazip and is not listed in /etc/jazip.conf.


       See the jazipconfig(8)  man  page  for  specifics  on  the  jazipconfig
       command that you can use to create /etc/jazip.
