I'm no guru, but you might try adding the following to your

/dev/hdb1(*)   /mnt/zip100    ext2 defaults,user  0  0

(*) assumes your Zipdrive is an IDE device slaved to the first IDE
controller. I presume you know the device name if it's not, since
you know how to mount it yourself.

Then execute mount -a, right click on your desktop, and pick
'Rescan Devices'. This ought to add /mnt/zip100 to your filesystem
tree and put it on your desktop.

Good Luck,
