I think, the Zoom is a USB-audio device, so make sure you have
snd-usb-audio loaded: check with "lsmod | grep snd-usb-audio". If it's
not loaded, load it with "modprobe snd-usb-audio" and use whatever tool
your distribution provides to load it automatically.

After loading, unplug and replug the device and watch /var/log/messages
and do some "cat /proc/asound/cards"
