Those boot disks worked flawlessly, and I was able to install
Redhat 9 using the parallel-port Backpack CD-Rewriter.
Unfortunately, my 133MHz/40MB RAM laptop is not up to
the task of running Redhat 9, the performance is awful.
I performed the test earlier than expected, sine I ran into a
problem on Redhat 7.1, where trying to load the pcd module
produced an error "module parprt_lowlevel could not be found".
I did some research, and some folks were able to alias to parport_pc,
but I never ran into this issue in the past. Since I need to revert to RH
7.1 on this laptop to achieve reasonable performance, I would appreciate
any information as to what I might have done wrong when building the
kernel. As far as I can remember, I did not have any such issues when
installing 2 years ago,
