How about "No low level parallel port device modules found"?
"No low level device" sounds like the driver couldn't find the ZIP drive.

I think we can agree on one thing, we need to have something a little more
descriptive than what currently exists (hopefully enough to point them in the
correct direction).

The ppa driver has some implicit assumptions about the parallel port being
PC style, something I need to fix (perhaps in parport-scsi-0.02?).

Current project list:
a) Maintain Linux ZIP drivers (documentation needed)
b) Create Linux chipset specific parport drivers
c) Start on ParSCSI drivers (75% complete)

Any assistance to clearing this list most welcome
