    Ignore this message. The older ZIP drives aren't IEEE 1284 devices,
    that's all. It doesn't mean that no device is _there_, just that
    whatever device _is_ there (if there is one at all) isn't an IEEE 1284

    Parport_probe has nothing to do with the ppa driver; parport_probe
    just offers information to the user, actually, and only very few
    drivers (the HP OfficeJet ones for instance) even use that
