     Add the umass driver to the kernel.

           camcontrol rescan 0

     Rescan a Zip drive that was added after boot.  The command above assumes
     that the Zip drive is the first SCSI bus in the system.

           disklabel -w -r da0 zip100
           newfs da0c
           mount -t ufs /dev/da0c /mnt

     Write a disklabel to the Zip drive (see vpo for the disktab entry),
     creates the file system and mounts the new file system on /mnt.

           newfs_msdos /dev/da0

     Create a new FAT type file system.
