If so, please let me know where i could possibly find it.
Your time would be greatly appreciated.

Try
                insmod paride
                insmod epat
                insmod pd

And your SparQ should appear on /dev/pda ...  Use it in the same way
you would /dev/hda ...

You can read more information in

        /usr/src/linux-2.0.35/Documentation/paride.txt

on your system, or go to

Get the upgrade rpms for 2.0.35, upgrade your system, then

        insmod paride
        insmod epat
        insmod pd

And, you should then have your SparQ on /dev/pda

Treat it like any other disk - fdisk, mke2fs, etc.
