OK, I have not tried to compile or anything like that. if you are running the live cd, you may need to consider actually installing ZS to the hdd then it should have access, as other than /Database /database i believe the rest of the files are read-only, being on the cd and all.
there are several help posts in the forum on this and seems several ppl have done several different types of installations. including SCSI and SATA.
