[PARPORT] problems w/ paride driver for Shuttle EPAT adapter

Hello all,

I have some problems with the paride device driver for linux. I want to
access a
CDROM drive (IBM, model-no. CRMC-FX001DE) connected via the Shuttle EPAT
adapter to my bidirectional printer port on my laptop. I used insmod
[module] to load paride.o, epat.o and pcd.o
Everything works fine, also mounting a cdrom (after creating the
appropriate device files in /dev/). I can even copy or read smaller files,
but when I try to copy a larger file of many smaller files the system
hangs: sometimes the only remedy is to switch my linux-box off (!), because
the console is locked up. I am running Slackware 3.5, kernel 2.0.30, the
version of paride I am using is 0.94.

Did anybody encounter this phenomena, too? Is there a solution?
Any help would be appreciated!
