The port is set to bidirectional mode, although I've done some tests in
the other mode as well.

Here is a list of a couple of commands and the corresponding output from
dmesg, the last two gives same responses as the first one except for the
supplied lines:

~$# insmod pd drive0=0x378,0,0,2,0,0,0 verbose=1

pd: pd version 1.04s, major 45, cluster 64, nice 0
pda: epat: port 0x378, mode 2, ccr 80, test=(255,255,0)
pda: Adapter not found
pd: no valid drive found

~# insmod pd drive0=0x378,0,0,3,0,0,0 verbose=1

pda: epat: port 0x378, mode 3, ccr 25, test=(255,255,510)

~# insmod pd drive0=0x378,0,0,2,0,0,-1 verbose=1

pda: epat: port 0x2019c84, mode 2, ccr ff, test=(255,255,510)

Hope this is of any help..


Please ignore the REPLY-TO field in any of my previous mails as it is
wrong. I'm sorry if this has caused troubles, it was _not_ my intention to
fool any mailsystems or spammers. Rather a mistake I made, trying out a
new mailreader.
