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
backpack: ID 38, Tx EPP (Dword)
pda: Sharing parport0 at 0x278
pda: WDC WD200EB-00, master, 16514064 blocks [8063M], (16383/16/63), fixed
Here is the output from lsmod:

parport 7452 1 [parport_probe parport_pc paride]
this is after being run manually.
Here is the output from fdisk /dev/pda:
