Subject:   3.1-BETA and parallel Zip drive

I've been having problems getting 3.1-BETA to work with a parallel Zip
drive.  It sees the drive, but gives me timeouts.  There is a disk in the
drive.  There is also an Adaptec 1542 SCSI controller in the computer(was
thinking maybe that could have something to do with it??).  Here is dmesg
output and kernel config:

# Parallel-Port Bus
# Parallel port bus support is provided by the `ppbus' device.
# Multiple devices may be attached to the parallel port, devices
# are automatically probed and attached when found.
# Supported devices:
# vpo   Iomega Zip Drive
#       Requires SCSI disk support ('scbus' and 'da'), best
#       performance is achieved with ports in EPP 1.9 mode.
# nlpt  Parallel Printer, use _instead_ of lpt0
# plip  Parallel network interface
# ppi   General-purpose I/O ("Geek Port")
# pps   Pulse per second Timing Interface
# lpbb  Philips official parallel port I2C bit-banging interface
# Supported interfaces:
# ppc   ISA-bus parallel port interfaces.
