        You did this: patch -p0 ppSCSI-0.91.patch

        You need to do this: patch -p0 < ppSCSI-0.91.patch
        or this: cat ppSCSI-0.91.patch | patch -p0
        or this: zcat ppSCSI-0.91.patch.gz | patch -p0

        The patch command takes the patch file as standard input...

        Also, when I patched 2.2.13 with this patch file I had to
manually add in some rejected chunks to the kernel makefile...
