You _should_ be able to just do

        insmod pcd

in step 3. Since you are asking the question, I'm guessing that
something doesn't work. In that case, please do

        insmod pcd verbose=1

and then extract all relevant messages from 'dmesg' and send them to
me. (The list doesn't need to watch us debug your setup.)

In an earlier mail, I think you said you were using RedHat 5.2. If so,
you don't need to make any device nodes.

If the module loaded, this should work.
