    Now I've done it and the error is still reported:

    [root@lago char]# modprobe ppdev
    /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/char/ppdev.o: init_module:
    Input/output error
    Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
    including invalid IO or IRQ parameters

    /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/char/ppdev.o failed
    /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/char/ppdev.o: insmod ppdev failed
