[PARPORT] First DAY..!!!

My first day on the list and I get an anouncement about exactly what I
was looking for.

 beta Drivers for my old epst.c (Syquest SyJet)...with scsi emulating
on a parport...

sigh....the only bad part is...it is WAAAAAAAAAAYYY over my head...

I was up to just compiling the old epst.c...and epst.h files...then

insmod epst.o


mount -t msdos /dev/sda1 /mnt/syquest

But this beta driver thing asks me to patch the kernel it took me all
weekend just to
compile correctly...

I do finally have paride and parport in the kernel...and epat...don't
suppose there is a way
I can get them to work with the SyJet?

On boot i get these messages...

parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [SPP,ECP,ECPPS2]
parport0: no IEEE-1284 device present.

paride: epat registered as protocol 0
pd: pd version 1.05, major 45, cluster 64, nice 0
pg: pg version 1.02, major 97
pg0: Autoprobe failed
pg: No ATAPI device detected

pda: Autoprobe failed
pd: no valid drive found


When I insmod paride and epat....

then try to mount pda........it says /dev/pda has wrong major or minor

I'm flailing wildly I know....:)

Any help would be appreciated...
