to load the modules and have your Syquest run it depends on your kernel
type, I think.
With a kernel 2.2.x you have to take the script given in
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/paride.txt, put it in a file, make this
file executable and then execute it.
This will add devices in /dev.
With a kernel 2.4.x you can do the same, I hope, or if you have devfs
installed you don't have to take the script.
Be careful with this sort of kernel. I had to put everything concerning
the Syquest not as modules and to answer "Yes" instead.
Concerning the modules you can do like this :
With a Debian you have a program named modconf which will guide you and
will load modules for you.
With others distributions you can do like that :
1) insmod parport.o
2) insmod paride.o
3) insmod epat.o
4) insmod pd.o
Normally the machine will say your module is loaded after each part.
the device is /dev/pda and you can mount it for example on /mnt
mount /dev/pda /mnt

I hope it will help you. If not mail again :-))
