that works.

I have removed everything I added to rc.local.

All of this got me to looking around a little bit more.  In retrospect,
should I have renamed rc.modules > rc.modules.old and made a new rc.modules
using the rc.modules-2.6.7 as a base?  Nevermind . . .

rc.modules-2.6.7 is identical to rc.modules according to diff on my 2.6.7 machine. Looks like either an oversight on PV's part or he just didn't make a new modules file with the updated 2.6.x series module names and if statements in the 2.6 kernel modules package. Normally I would email him about it, but given his health issues currently, it would probably get lost in the volume of well wishes and health suggestions that I imagine is currently clogging his inbox. The only thing you'll have to watch out for is that there may be modules listed in rc.modules that have been renamed in the 2.6.x series. This would not apply to any of the parallel port modules though and, if you haven't come across it yet, then probably not to your current hardware either.
