It is also important to know whose adapter is in the case. Several
third parties distribute the Philips drive with different parallel port

RedHat 5.1 can't help you. There is a boot disk that will allow you to
install RedHat 5.2 - and RedHat themselves plan to support PARIDE installations
with a revised boot disk for 6.0.

In the meantime, you'll probably find that a current SuSE distribution is
your best solution.

For RedHat 5.2, at

But, SuSE will work "out of the box" and Slackware has a pportide.i boot
disk in their ftp area that also works.

You will need to know what adapter is in your case, however.

Right here.
