well, that's not the problem. i dont want to do a insmod ppa when the
zipdrive is there and a rmmod ppa when not. i configured my system
to automatically load and remove the ppa and lp modules vice versa,
cause both are connected to the same parallel port, and only one of
ppa and lp can be active at the same time. it took me days to find
a working combination of conf.modules and some smaller scripts.
i want to know how to say yast not to try to access the zip, or
maybe there is a possibility to rmmod such uninitialized modules.
thanx in advance
