    I have 2 problems.

    1) parallel port drive is being seen as an 8gb drive, when it is a 20gb
    drive? what needs to be changed to fix this?
    2) I can load the modules manually and access the drive, but when the system
    is rebooted the modules are not loaded? what needs to be done to get the
    modules to load at boot?

    I have a Micro Solutions backpack M/N 154015 series 6 drive.
    I am running RedHat 6.2 and acquired drivers from MicroSolutions.
    I am running kernel 2.2.14-5.0.

    Here is a copy of the existing conf.modules:

    pre-install pd /sbin/modprobe pd
    alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
    #options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7, auto

    Here is the output from dmesg:

    parport0: PC-style at 0x278 [SPP,PS2,EPP]
    parport0: no IEEE-1284 device present.
    backpack: LPT 0278, Mfg Unk[0]
    backpack: ID 38, Tx EPP (Dword)
    pda: Sharing parport0 at 0x278
    pda: WDC WD200EB-00, master, 16514064 blocks [8063M], (16383/16/63), fixed

     pda: pda1

    Here is the output from lsmod:

    Module Size Used by
    parport_probe 3240 0 (autoclean)
    parport_pc 7304 1 (autoclean)
    pd 11628 0 (unused)
    backpack 47780 1
    paride 3500 1 [pd backpack]
    parport 7452 1 [parport_probe parport_pc paride]

    this is after being run manually.
    insmod parport
    insmod paride
    insmod backpack
    insmod pd

    Here is the output from fdisk /dev/pda:

    Disk /dev/pda: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 16383 cylinders
