Try upgrading to a more recent kernel (like 2.2.5). The first couple
of kernel releases (2.2.0 -> 2.2.1) had a broken imm driver (the ZIP
Plus drive) and possibly a broken ppa driver.

Secondly look in the kernel configuration in the general
configuration for parallel port support. Without this most parallel
port drivers (ParIDE, ZIP, PLIP, lp) will not be available.
