Check the archive ;-)

Yes, the ORB pp drive works with PARIDE. It uses the "on26" protocol.

Assuming you have a 2.2 kernel, you should be able to

        insmod paride
        insmod on26
        insmod pd

and find that the drive is on /dev/pda

You may have to load the parport modules first, depending on how your
kernel is built.
