BP32DRV error on bootup

Does anyone by chance know what BP32DRV driver(s) are supposed to do.  Since installing NT Server 4, I've
received the following error:
   " The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load BP32DRV"
 
I've tried looking this error up and have found nothing, perhaps there are better resources?  I've installed Patch #2, and still I get this error.  Everything seems to be running fine, although you never know when it might get you.
 
Any help or directions would be most helpful.
 
Thanks in Advance,
Garet

Use REGEDIT (new to NT 4.0 -- can search the registry for a specific value which regedt32 cannot) to search the registry for "bp32drv".
If no hits, use "Find" from the taskbar to search all files below the NT root directory.

The BP32drv driver is a "BackPack" Driver for Microsolutions' BackPack Hard drives, tape drives or cd-rom drives.  If you do not have a Back Pack drive currrently connected to your paralell port, simply use the Service control applet located in the Control Panel to set the startup option to disabled.  Next time you start you will no longer get the messasge, guaranteed!  Alternatively, if you see an icon for the BackPack drive in the control panel, use it to uninstall the driver.
