The title says it all, does anybody know if the Colorado Trakker 250,
parallel port tape drive is supported in Linux?

1. Colorado Trakker 250 under Linux (and an AWE32 problem?)

This is a parallel port tape drive made by HP and it has linux drivers.
The problem is that I cant get the drivers and ftape patches to work with a
2.1.x series kernel.

Under 2.0.29/30 I can get the modules built and insmodded and I can retension
the tape but restoring from backup tapes doenst work (it seems to hang about
5 meg into the tape and just shoe shines after that)

I really need to be able to get this far under a 2.1.x series kernel (hopefully
something like 30/40 series) as I have a soundblaster AWE32 which I can get
working under 2.1.x but the patches dont work with 2.0.x (the wont apply)

Has anyone got one of these working fully under linux and possibly even with
a 2.1.x series kernel?
And has anyone got an AWE32 working with 2.0.29/30?

Thanks for any help...
