    I guess you patched it already. If not, read the kernel howto. You don't need
    the -p0 option, but the -p1 option.

    You need the sg module, ppscsi and onscsi.
    It might be that you need scsi_mod, but i'm not sure.
    When you do modprobe ppscsi, and insmod onscsi, they should be loaded.
    I like it as module, with the 2.2 kernel i have some problems with sharing the
    parport with a printer. With 2.4 it seems to go much smoother, but well, i used
    it only for one week.

    There are two versions of the patch.
    I believe the normal one is for 2.2.12 and before.
    The other one is from 7-dec-99 and is for newer kernels.

    I don't think so.
