    Thanks to James and Cam for the advice.

    I have read Kernel-HOWTO and have two questions before I go ahead.

    1. Is there a way of running "make config" (or some other script) so that
    all the current selections are retained and I _only_ have to say "y" to
    the Parallel Port IDE support? My system was configured by someone else
    (and it generally works) but I don't know what responses he gave to the
    make script. BTW, Kernel-HOWTO does not explicitly say what the
    configuration file is called and where it resides.

    2. Section 9.2 of Kernel-HOWTO implies that I can leave my existing kernel
    alone and run "make modules", rather than configuring them into the
    kernel. Can I do this to get the same result so that I can then "insmod
    paride" successfully?

    You need to recompile your kernel to include Parallel Port IDE device
    support as modules. See the Kernel HOW-TO on how to accomplish this.

    NOTE: You should compile all of the Shuttle drivers. My HP
    tapestreamer uses the EPAT interface, but I failed to compile the EPST
    driver the fires time and the EPAT driver would not load.
