Oh that is right RH7.1 is 2.4 based. I forgot. There is definitely
one with regards to the handling of the parallel port. It won't be
able to load the parport_probe module. They changed the name for
it. As for everything else we don't know. It is really a matter of "we
haven't tested it to make sure that it works."
