The problem is still there. It seems that lp.o depends on
parport_pc.o and "depmod -a" is unable to figure it out.
I write "it seems" because after modprobing parport_pc and lp
(which installs three modules), the status of lsmod is the

Module      Pages  Used by
lp                 5188   0 (unused)
parport_pc         7236   1
parport            7280   1 [lp parport_pc]
af_packet          6032   0 (unused)
unix              10212   1

So parprot_pc seems to be unused, but it is busy if I try to
remove it.
On my old Debian 2.1 upgraded to kernel 2.2.13, lp modprobes
fine, loading only parport.

May be it is not boot-floppies specific? Something changed in the
modules? Can someone test lp module of kernel 2.2.17 in a
different environment?
