    I've got an IBM ThinkPad 600 that I've successfully loaded RedHat 7.1 onto
    that I'm having a heck of a time getting the parallel Zip drive to
    work. Its a 250MB drive, and under Windows 98 (its not mine, its for a
    faculty member), it functions properly.

    I've tried the documented modules.conf lines to load parport and
    ppa. parport loads cleanly, but ppa spews back 3 lines that all begin
    with the pathname of the ppa.o module, followed by "undefined symbol" and
    then one of each:


    where xxxxxx's are seemingly random (but possibly useful) hex numbers.

    If anyone has a clue what it takes to successfully load drivers to run
    this Zip drive under a 2.4 kerneled RedHat 7.1 install, please let me know


    -Jeff. :)
