    I'm trying to install Redhat 7.0 on a toshiba 486dx4-75 laptop with a
    microsolutions backpack parallel port cd-rom using the paride boot disk and
    I am receiving this error. /tmp/pcd.o init_module: Device or resource busy.
    I have looked through the archive and found some helpful notes but did not
    really find anything specific about this. Is this a irq or address issue?
    The bios on the laptop has several settings for the parallel port. Ecp and
    bi-directional along with different addresses. The documentation says use
    ecp when possible. I tried using both of these settings along with the
    different addresses with no luck. Also I know that you can specify module
    parameters during the install but I did not see anything for irq. What's
    the syntax to change the irq or does the driver's autoprobe scan all irq's
    for the parallel port device? Any help on this install?
