1) ppa 1.41 has been realeased.
Fixes: Header file (ppa.h) to allow compilation with Linux 2.1.85
Nat Semi Kludge for newer super IO chipsets
TODO: Rewrite SCSI error handling as per Linux 2.1.85
2) Updated main ZIP drive page.
Added more info about Iomega products (so please stop
asking me about JAZ drives and JAZ PCMCIA cards!! Seriously
I have people ask me what is the best way to connect a JAZ
drive to a laptop, "JAZ Traveller or JAZ PCMCIA card?").
3) Added scratch area with tips and tricks:
TODO: Info is verbose and unstructured.
Nasty gramatical error in the last line
(you may need to think carefully about what I wrote to pick
Contributions most welcome (and encouraged!!).
4) Released "qboot_zip.sh" script for building a combined FAT/EXT2FS disk
for demonstrating Linux. Instructions can be found in above web page.
5) JAZ Traveller to be reviewed next week, collecting device on Saturday
Start two weeks leave on Monday. I have reports that this device
works with ppa in SPP and PS/2 modes but not EPP. Will be testing
with a Digital TLZ09 DAT drive.
1) ZIP Plus driver on hold.
Complete chaos in the office for at least 3 weeks (office renovation - I
only heard last Thursday [glad to be taking leave]), followed by an
couple weeks in Adelaide (South Australia - job related).
I have managed to convince my manager to buy a ZIP+ drive for my office
