    Hi All,
    It is not that my drive (HP 7200 Surestore) is bad. I have
    been using
    it for more than a year under Mandrake 7.1, recently I
    switched to RedHat and this mysterious problem started
    occurring. In Mandrake, I used the following sequrnce of
    commands to install the modules,

    /sbin/modprobe paride
    /sbin/modprobe epat
    /sbin/modprobe pg
    /sbin/modprobe pcd

    And it worked like a charm. Now under RH, the last command
    generates the following message,

    /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/block/paride/pg.o:
    init_module: Operation not permitted
    Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module
    parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
    /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/block/paride/pg.o:
    insmod /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/block/paride/pg.o
    failed
    /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/block/paride/pg.o:
    insmod pg failed

    I have tried switching the sequence of the last two
    commands, with messages in the same line. I feel really
    frustated. Could any kind soul please tell me what is wrong.

    Output from dmesg follows:
