    Hello Tony,

    Sorry, for replying so late, but i haven't read the mailing lists,

    On Jun 13, Tony Laszlo sent his /var/log/messages:

    This shows a big problem: Ftape doesn't know that you have
    CONFIG_PNP_PARPORT enabled. The method ft_parport_probe_one is only
    used for the non parport case.

    Have you set this option in your kernel configuration? Is
    /usr/src/linux (or whatever the variable in MCONFIG points to) the
    right directory, where you recompiled the kernel? And did you "make
    distclean" and recompile ftape _after_ compiling the kernel?
