    Thank you for the tip.
    I added this but noticed nothing different, even
    after rebooting.

    I am wondering if there is an IRQ problem resulting
    from the way I compiled ftape? I commented out the
    lines for ftape_internal and all types of devices
    except for Trakker. This I uncommented and left
    with the default information. Does the following
    not allow Trakker to find IRQ 7 used by parport?

     HP Colorado Trakker parallel port drive, try
                    -DCONFIG_FT_PAR_$(TRAKKER_DEV)=1 \
