I added this one to support a second
parallel port that I installed... you
may not need it.
This should be the correct address/irq
for your hardware (it might be ok, since
it seems to be detected below)

parport0: PC-style at 0x378, irq 7 [SPP,ECP,ECPEPP,ECPPS2]
parport0: Printer, HEWLETT-PACKARD DESKJET 720C
parport1: PC-style at 0x278, irq 5 [SPP]
parport1: no IEEE-1284 device present.
Note: my zip is on parport1, so this isn't any help :/

I don't have a lp0: line listed in my dmesg output...

I'm not sure how to help you further...
My kernel config (2.2.1) related to the zip is:
(I use 'make config')
Parallel port support = Y
PC-style hardware = Y
Plug and Play support = Y
Autoprobe for parallel devices = Y
SCSI Support = Y
SCSI disk support = Y
IOMEGA parallel port (ppa) = Y
(I set the following options because I'm using a really ancient
parallel card for this drive... you probably don't need them)
ppa/imm slow (but safe) EPP-16 = Y
ppa/imm Assume slow parport control register = Y
After I compiled with these options, and rebooted, my zip drive
was recognized and worked fine.
Hope this helps...
