It's no longer so easy to do it that way. Besides, you really should
learn how to use patch :-)

If you have a 2.2.9 kernel in /usr/src/linux, the patch is little more

        cd /usr/src
        patch -p0 < ppSCSI-0.90.patch

        cd linux

        make config
                don't change any of your previous answers, except
                make sure that you have included scsi support,
                scsi disk support, pp scsi support, and epst as modules.

        make dep; make modules

        and finally do whatever you have to do to put the modules where
        you want them

Once you have the modules in the right place.

        insmod scsi_mod
        insmod sd_mod
        insmod ppscsi
        insmod epst

Your SyJet should show up as /dev/sda ...

No. PARIDE is for IDE/ATAPI devices. EPAT and EPST are different devices.
