I cannot use that because I have an SCSI based system and thus, as far
as I know, the SCSI disc driver cannot be a module.

I am just wondering why the following does not work:

chicago:~# cat /etc/modutils/zip
alias block-major-8-16 ppa

I am including the file /etc/conf.modules obtained after 

# update-modules

Thank you for your help,
