Linux Step By Steps


EXTERNAL, PARALLEL, LS120


Phil Cook / Mike Andrew

The modules required to drive this beast are readily available in the kernel. Specifically

paride.o
epat.o and
pf.o


If you are using Caldera, place them in the order above in /etc/modules/default (or use coas to do so)


Otherwise, using modprobe

ONE

modprobe epat

(paride will automatically load)

TWO

modprobe pf

There is NO requirement to modify /etc/modules.conf

MOUNTING

To mount your external drive

mount -t vfat /dev/pf0 /mnt/ls120

It is left to you to massage the above line into /etc/fstab should you wish to do so.

If things go bang.

There is a strng chance that you don't have these modules compiled if you updated your kernel. The necessary panel in recompiling is 'block devices', turn parallel IDE, PF and SHUTTLE TEchnology on.
