Install the new version of "setserial" from slink or potato.

This is dependent on how the kernel was compiled. You need at least
CONFIG_PARPORT, CONFIG_PARPORT_PC, CONFIG_SCSI, CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD, and
CONFIG_SCSI_PPA (all as modules in my case), and you might need to
configure the parallel port with the necessary parameters. In
/etc/conf.modules, I have
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7

BTW, 2.2.0-pre5 was out last time I checked.
