Thanks very much for your responses.
Trakker still not working; and irq still not being
found by parport.
cat /proc/parport/0/hardware with:
echo 7 (or 5) > /proc/parport/0/irq
does make the irq value change but does
not result in Trakker finding the irq,
* So, perhaps the important question is, should
the irq value be automatically set with
insmod parport_pc ,
and if so, what do I need to change in modules.conf?

modprobe -c shows that we are dealing with /etc/modules.conf

Yes, that has been there all along, on both machines.
relevant lines are as follows:
alias char-major-27 zftape
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7
options ftape ft_fdc_driver=trakker,none,none,none

Actually, I never connected them in a chain like that.
I simply used rmmod, switched cables and insmod.

Thanks for the advice. I am not used to this distribution yet.
