    If you are using a PP adapter other then the FreeCom, you need to modify
    rc.pp according to your hardware.

    I just updated the file rc.pp:

    # Note: The adapter shell var must updated in order to reflect your actual hardware.
    # The current value "friq" is the right value for the FreeCom PP adapter.
    # See paride documentation for the list of other drivers.
    case "$1" in
            echo "Starting Parallel Port IDE/ATAPI"
