 I have an external hard drive (IBM Deskstar 16GP) with an
IDE to parallel port adapter. The disk is formatted under
I would like to mount and read the contents of the disk using the
parallel port under Linux RedHat 5.2.
How do I do that?
Using the command:

'mount -t msdos /dev/pda /mnt/dos1'

results in the error

'mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/pda as a block device
       (maybe `insmod driver'?) '

then after typing

'insmod pd'

I get

/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_release
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_do_claimed
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_init
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_connect
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_write_regr
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_write_block
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_read_block
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_read_regr
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pd.o: unresolved symbol pi_disconnect

Does anybody know how I can solve this?

Thanks in advance.
