    Im trying to set up an HP colorado 5Gb on RedHat 8.0
    When I try to do it the way that it is described in the HOW-TO
    on this site, this is what i get:

    [root@localhost dmitriy]# /sbin/insmod parport
    [root@localhost dmitriy]# /sbin/insmod paride
    [root@localhost dmitriy]# /sbin/insmod epat
    [root@localhost dmitriy]# /sbin/insmod pt
    init_module: Operation not permitted
    Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module
    parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
          You may find more information in syslog or the output
    from dmesg

    here is the relevant dmesg output:

    paride: version 1.06 installed (parport)
    paride: epat registered as protocol 0
    pt: pt version 1.04, major 96
    epat_init_protopt0: Autoprobe failed
    pt: No ATAPI tape drive detected

    I tried, reconnecting the drive and cycling the power, but I
    get the same result every time. Im am pretty sure the drive is
    in working condition because it was used on a Windows machine
    before this.
    I am probably just doing something wrong, or not doing
    something I should - I have no clue.

    Any help would be appreciated.
