I'm trying to have a zip iomega 100, external, parallel port, work.
Basically, when adding the ppa module to the kernel, I get an error message,
saying that ppa is busy, and some device is using it, and ppa won't load.
When I list the loaded modules, I don't see any parport or parport_pc
either. From what I've read in the archives it seems these modules should be
My problem is the following: I'm using a RedHat 5.2, so my kernel is 2.0.36,
and it seems parport, and parport_pc won't work with kernels whose version
is prior to 2.2.
So here are my questions:
am I right in believing I won't have the device work with the 2.0.36 kernel
do I need those parport and parport_pc drivers?
If so, do I have to upgrade to 2.2+ to use these drivers?
P.S. I believe Iomega changed their parallel port from ppa to imm like two
years ago, yet when getting info under windows on my zip drive, it tells me
the driver is ppa. How could I know for sure? I've read about this
"autodetect" being printed on the cable, yet I'm surprised Iomega would
still be selling ppa's today, if they started selling these in mid=98
Anyway, if it's an imm Zip, imm would also only work with 2.2+ kernels,
