The documentation specifically discourages the use of modprobe/kerneld etc,
for precisely this reason.

Please use insmod to load the _three_ required modules:

        insmod paride
        insmod epat
        insmod pcd

NB: your module configuration is messed up if you are loading 2.0.35
modules from a 2.0.34 directory.

Notice that there is no indication that epat has been loaded. There is
no dependency on epat that any autoloader can detect. You must either
fix your conf.modules to tell modprobe and friends about epat (read the
kerneld documentation), or load the modules by hand.

For the same reason.

When you configured the kernel, did you remember to include the epat
module ? Again, it is not mentioned in the log messages you report.
