hmm. Let me amend that. There were no *immediate* changes. I had left
it in EPP 32 bit mode, with my ppa loaded. At first everything was
normal. A little bit later, I started getting scsi errors, and couldn't
access the Zip drive. So I echoed it back to PS/2 mode, and everything
worked normally. So I guess it *does* work.
