    Thankyou for the hints on how to solve my SparQ problems.
    The kernel 2.4.2-ac26 solved my large files problems.

    Using IEEE routines in parport module: great! I can reach my printer
    hoocked in the SparQ box !

    But still...
    After upgrading my rutines handling modules to the current release I
    still have some problems when removing modules.

    It only happens when I do the operation with a script

    umount /zipdrive
    rmmod pd
    rmmod epat
    rmmod paride

    some times the machine frozens and once I god a panic message. It
    might happen when removing epat or paride.

    Since it does not happen when I type the commands I figured out that
    time has to do with this. I changed the script to:

    umount /zipdrive
    rmmod pd
    rmmod epat
    rmmod paride
    exit 0

    with this change I experienced no more problems.

    The kernel panic read:
    <1> Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c88893d4
    printing eip:
    c011c447 *pde: 012b9067 *pte: 0 Oops: 2 CPU: 0
