    hey all,
    its matt again with my amazing parport problems...
    ok so i think (well know really) that ive done something stupid.
    when i cated the asci files in question i found that i had written a
    message to them, while trying to get something to print...
    eg: echo "hello" > /dev/lp0

    maybe i tried > /dev/parport
    and then forgot the /dev bit? would this have trashed the files?
    ok, so should there be other files there instead? and if so, i guess ill
    have to recompile the modules again. is there a way i can just recompile
    the modules that i want.

    also, with regards to a previous question: why are these modules being
    loaded at boot, when i specified that they should be part of the kernal?

    thanks for any help!
