yep, doing insmod ppa rebooted my machine really fast...
but trying different things... I compiled 'lp' as module, ...
retried insmod ppa and it rebooted too
*BUT* if you *DISABLE LP* i.e. do a killall lpd; rmmod lp
doing an insmod ppa won't reboot your machine and the IoMega ZiP will
work well
anyway, afterward I had problems with making lp relive....

mmhh.. will check latest ppa driver anyway ... :)
