Thanks for the help. Yes, sparq works just fine with paride-0.94.:)
As to module-kernel mismatch, that was fixed by adding -I/usr/src/linux/include
in the Makefile.
As far as data rates go - I have a Ezflyer and have just tested paride
- I got about 220KBytes/s on a 70MB test. Whether this is average or
above or below, I dont' know, also if the SparQ is faster, although I
think the port is the bottle neck here rather than the drive.
