ZIP Drive

I'm having some problems trying to install a Parallel Zip Drive.
I've read in the HOWTO's mini that you must compile the kernel with
Parralel printer support and Scsi low level driver (for Iomega's parallel
zip) as modules.
After i've done it,i've installed the Jazip rpm which puts a script
( in the etc/rc.d directory which is called from rc.sysinit.
During the startup process,no scsi host is found and the output from the
script says "Searching for zip disk ...nope".
Because of the disk mentioning,i rebooted the machine with a zip disk in
the drive nothing changed.
I don't get what i'm doing wrong,so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
