    I'm running Mandrake 7.0 on an AMD k6-2 400mhz with 64 meg ram on a dual
    boot w/W98SE and I'm trying to install a Zip 100 Model# ZIP100P2. In
    other words, your basic parallel port zip drive. I've been trying to
    get an answer to this problem for 6 mos. and no one seems to be able to
    answer it.

    When I run modprobe -v ppa or imm I get the following:

    For imm I get:
    /sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.14-15mdk/misc/parport.o
    /sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.14-15mdk/scsi/imm.o
    /sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.14-15mdk/scsi/imm.o:init_module:device
    or resource busy
    parport:device or resource busy

    For ppa I get:
    /sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.14-15mdk/scsi/ppa.o
    /sbin/insmod -L /lib/modules/2.2.14-15mdk/scsi/ppa.o:init_module:device
    or resource busy
    parport:device or resource busy

    I also got the same error when attempting to install on the same system
    running Red Hat 6.1. and Storm Linux 2000.

    So what's the problem, how do I solve it, and how do I get my zip drive
    to work. If I can't get my zip drive to work soon I'm going to have to
    scrap Linux and go back to the evil empire of Microshaft to use my
