ppa working means that you have a ZIP drive with the older interface.
There appears to be quite a few older ZIP drives still on shop
The failure when the ppa is compiled into the kernel could be caused
by parport / parport_pc are compiled as module. I would like to see
the output from dmesg for the case of "sd_mod statically compiled
into the kernel + ppa".
