Hello folks, for one last time I wanted to set in motion my old, parallel-port IOMEGA Zip Drive to back up my stack of disks before I retire (read: dump in the trash) the whole shebang for good. I think the proper driver is ppa. I connected everything but nothing happens. "Happens" in the sense that anything gets added in the /dev/disks/ directory tree when I insert a disk in the drive. I tried "rmmod"ing all parallel port-related modules and modprobing only ppa, but no change. The module loaded without error though. All this is sooo long ago, I really can't remember how it worked back in the days of the 1.xx.yy kernel which is probably the last time I used this thing. I know there were two versions of the parallel-port ZIP, and my drive is the older one. Here's some modprobe output, if it is of any interest: kir:/dev# modprobe -v ppa insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-4-k7/kernel/drivers/parport/parport.ko insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-4-k7/kernel/drivers/scsi/ppa.ko ppa: Version 2.07 (for Linux 2.4.x) pnp: Device 00:0a activated. parport: PnPBIOS parport detected. parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7, dma 3 [PCSPP,TRISTATE,COMPAT,EPP,ECP,DMA] kir:/dev# Thanks, --D.
