An OT question: does Linux recognize Zip drives?

Win7 does not and I have a dozen or so Zip disks I want to check for content. The drive is in my machine from the XP days & BIOS recognizes it.

Not out of the box, fix for IDE drives:

And one for parallel port drives.

Win7 does not seem to support the zip drive at all.
