The imm module depends on parport (and parport_pc) for access to the port,
regardless of whether you intend to use the sharing capabilities.

When you get the 'resource busy' error, take a look at what the 'dmesg'
command says. You might find it worth trying the ppa driver instead, but
it's unlikely to make a difference if the Zip drive is new.
