Any help appreciated


1. RH5.0 Install of Parallel Zip Drive

I'm having difficulty with the RH5.0 installation process and my
parallel port ZIP drive.  During the Installation program, RH5.0 is not
able to find my parallel ZIP, even though it's right there on LPT2 --
even Win95 can find it.

Reading the ZIP mini-HOWTOs, I noted that the PPA driver defaults to
0x378 as the base I/O -- which, in my system, is LPT1.  When the Install
program failed to autoprobe, I went to the Options screen and entered
every variation of 0x278 (the base I/O for LPT2 on my system), including

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix this.
