    None in there. See the attached /etc/modules.conf

    I attached a copy of the listing, after doing the following:

    modprobe parport
    modprobe imm

    I also attached the file containing the messages I got at the command line
    with the imm modprobe call. And, I included a listing of modules
    currently loaded. Hope this helps.

    dmesg seems to be saying it can't find devices, which does point towards
    configuration issues. I'm probably looking at the solution and its not
    yet bonked me over the head.

    I have a Zip250 external parallel drive. I was only bemoaning the ease of
    which I got the Zip100 to work, and how much trouble this thing is. Sorry
    for the confusion.

    for it until I've stumped myself, so you're really helping me out of a
