    I'm trying to get my parallel zip 250 drive to work under
    linux. I'm running red hat 6.1 kernel 2.2.12-20. I
    recompiled the kernel and all the modules to be sure the
    error wasn't there. Anyway, I get errors when I try to load
    the imm.o module:

      imm: Version 2.03 (for Linux 2.0.0)
      imm: parport reports no devices.
      scsi : 0 hosts.
      /lib/modules/2.2.12-20/scsi/imm.o: init_module: Device or
        resource busy
      parport: Device or resource busy

    This is the result of running modprobe imm. The Zip drive is
    connected, powered, and has a disk in it. I tried obtaining
    the imm source from the website in order to recompile but
    the server wouldn't let me get it.

    Any suggestions would be welcome.
