    hi there,
    i am having a problem in getting my Imation superdisk to work for linux
    machine, i had followed every thing as in documention, the main problem i am
    getting is when i try to insert "pf" driver it says device busy. i am
    running redhat-linux 6.2, with kernel version of 2.2.16-3. the commands i
    used are

    1) insmod parport
    2) insmod paride
    3) insmod epat
    4) insmod pf

    The excat output is

    #insmod pf
    Using /lib/modules/2.2.16-3/misc/pf.o
    /lib/modules/2.2.16-3/misc/pf.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
