I have a parallel Iomega Zip 250 drive which I would like to be
recognised by RH 6.2 (PC is dual boot W95 / RH 6.2) I followed the
Mini-HOWTO on Zip Drive but 'insmod ppa' didn't work - I got errors
relating to parport_??? functions.
I followed the Mini-HOWTO and rebuilt the kernel but still got the
same error afterwards and now I get an unresolved symbols error on
After reading the Kernel HOWTO and a few mailings on the Red Hat web
site, I came to the conclusion that I need to configure things so that
parport and ppa are loaded into the initrd (ram disk) at boot time but
confusingly, the files mentioned in the postings didn't exist on my
system so I'm not sure how to do this.
If anyone can tell me what I've done wrong, if my hunch is right and
what I need to do to get the Zip drive working and resolve the boot
error, I'd be most grateful.
