Likely it is nothing. Printer is usually parallel (/dev/lp1 or /dev/lp0 in
new linux kernels). com0 is usually mouse, and I have my modem on /dev/com1.

Nay, do it in the BIOS. The Bios settings provide an option to chage IRQ and
ioport of com0 and com1. Try a different setting that doesn't conflict. If
you only use com0, disable com1 completely (if possible).
