paride-0.94 was a beta of PARIDE, and it was the last version that I did
for 2.0. PARIDE is now at 1.02. 1.01 can be found in the standard 2.1.102
kernel distribution. 1.02 should appear in 2.1.103 (when Linus releases it).

As it happens, there was a small problem with pt and the 8000t - which
prevented the driver from loading. This has been fixed in 1.02.

If you need to use pt on 2.0, you will have to make a handful of edits
to get it to compile. They're mainly related to changes in function
