I wanted to use the Ditto 2GB backup tape deck with linux. I installed
the ftape system and now I get the following error? Any clues?

PS: I check that the parallel port was working with a printer. Using
the cat datafile > /dev/lpt1. Note I need to use lpt1 for the tape



Red Hat Linux 5.1
ftape 4.03 pre1
kernel 2.0.32
