Where do we stand on Jazz drives on a parallel port?

You know, some people don't get the entire subject header...
Instead of depending on the subject header to convey your
entire message, why not also include it in the body?

Iomega sells a Jaz-to-parallel SCSI adapter. It may be
another ppa-based item like the adapter that makes up
the parallel Zip drives, so the parallel Zip support in
the kernel may work.

Then again, it may be a completely different adapter. If
there is a driver it will be at Grant Guenther's Linux
Parallel Port Home Page. www.torque.net/linux-pp.html
The most helpful thing you could find out is the
brand, model, and chipset type of your parallel port
adapter.

For Pete's sake, go out and buy a SCSI controller.  You can get them
cheaply, these days.  I bought a Tyan Yorktown I for $95.00 from
http://www.rcsystems.com.  I hear that the Buslogic 958 is also an
excellent controller; I don't know the price, however.  Buying a SCSI
controller will also get you faster performance over parallel!  However,
the new parallel standard might prove to beat even SCSI, but, in the
mean time, ...

1. Parallel port modem, tape drive, and backing up linux on Win/DOS

Hi,

Anybody know of a way to get linux to work with the Microcom 28.8P parallel
port modem?

How about the Iomega Ditto Easy 800 parallel port tape drive?

If the latter isn't possible, is there some utility on Windows or DOS
that can read linux files/partitions (if only to back them up...) ?

Thanks a lot!
