I still haven't figured out how to tell RH5.1 (version 2.35) how to recognize the HP LJ6 which is hung off the extended parallel port on my Zip Drive.

Any takers?

The Virtual SCSI Drive for Iomega Parallel controlers (didn't) and I am not sure it does still, support print throught. This is an issue with the driver. Check the documentation. You would need to install a second // port.
