Well, most of the Zip drives around are not that old anymore. Anyway let's see if this posts.

Place the module file in the /lib/modules/2.4.29/scsi directory.

In rxvt, type in;

depmod -a {hit the enter key}

Then try modprobe ppa

See if dmesg shows the parallel port zip drive and what the designation of the zip drive is, say sda4 if the disk is formatted as fat32.

I love it when a plan comes together

I finally found time to try this and it works...
for a while, after changing the zip disk the computer chrashes and reboots allthe time.

But perhaps I have a hardware problem there (very old machine). so don't worry i think everything is fine exept my hardware Smile

I'll try it out on a good machine some time and post the result.

Thanks for everything
