    Nope ...but I'm getting closer.

    I have tried putting all the modules IN the kernel and here is some
    feedback from the dmesg.

    Now this is with ECP set in the BIOS
    I have tried EPP
    and Bi-directional

    No matter the pd autoprobe always fails...with no
    valid drive found.

    When I use everything as modules and try to
    insmod everything ...I can load them
    all except pd

    with which I get an operation not permitted, error.

    even though I have tried the various parameter options
            i.e. insmod pd drive0-0x378,0

    etc. still get the error.

    Thanks for the help though I appreciate it....
