Iomega Zip & can't print

If my Iomega Zip driver is loaded, I can't print.  I heard once that I need to do some kind of complicated module switching every time I want to print, but I couldn't figure out insmod.  

I'm using RedHat Linux Pro 4.1a.  I also have Linux 4.1 (Vanderbilt) on-hand, but it isn't currently installed (if you have a solution that only works in Vanderbilt, I'd be willing to switch Linux versions).

You have to use modules. Read /docs/mini/modules and docs/mini/Zip-Drive for instructions. If you run kerneld for automatic loading and unloading of modules you don't have to use insmod. I run Slackware but I believe Redhat includes thes How-To's. If not I can send to you.
