Tann du plantage avec Ti-Mou?
Alors essayez donc Linux ou OS/2
We have software, food, music, news, search,

Having just obtained an Iomega Zip+ drive, I merrily recompiled my RH5.0 kernel
(2.0.32) for Zip support. Unfortunately, whereas my friend's parallel Zip [normal] drive
works really well, my [flashy envy-creating] Zip+ doesn't. Symptoms are refusing
to insmod the ppa driver with an error code of 2. A quick peek of the source
leads me to believe that it has found the parallel port but not the drive.
1. Any suggestions? [I've already considered less-than-legal options concerning
my friend's Zip drive...and discounted them]
2. Warning: Zip+ appears not to work on Linux (yet)!
