SubjectRe: Strange PPA (Parallel Zip Disk) with 2.1.103+

The port is already set to EPP mode and this is likely the smoking gun.
My guess is that this is not a ppa problem but a parport problem.

$ cat /proc/parport/1/devices
ppa
lp
$ cat /proc/parport/1/hardware
base: 0x278
irq: none
dma: none
modes: SPP,ECP,ECPPS2
$ cat /proc/parport/1/irq
none

I'll delve a little into parport-lore and see what I can discover.
