In a post-installation environment I have been trying to install a ZIP100
Being post install I did not have scsi support activated and have tried to
do this using the kernel configurator which I configured as:-
Type scsi_host Module ppa Arguments ppa_nybble=1 ppa_speed_low=6
On reboot I still get in dmesg:- scsi : 0 hosts
scsi : detected total
The following steps have been undertaken:-
1. Via BIOS changed the port from EPP+ECP to Normal.
2. Manually entered into /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit /sbin/modprobe ppa
3. In /etc/fstab manually entering: /dev/zip /mnt/zip vfat
user,noauto,exec 0 1
4. In /etc/mtools.conf entering: drive z: file="/dev/sda4" exclusive
When booting I note a comment of:-
/lib/modules/2.2.12-20/scsi/ppa.0: init_module: Device or resource busy.
parport: Device or resource busy.
I have not configured any printer for this port as I am solely reliant on
Samba to a Windows only printer located on a W9x PC.
I have had the ZIP drive for about 3 years (works perfectly on W98) so it
would not have the newer imm driver.
Any help to show me whats staring me in the face would be much appreciated.
