The sparclinux has no such options, at least not in kernels above 2.2.13
(the first kernel I installed on a sparc 5).
The parallel port support is called "Sparc Bidirectional Parallel Port"
and the module to load is bpp.
A successful insmod should give you
bpp in /proc/ioports and /proc/devices.
However, I gave up on the parallel printer because it turned out it wouldn't
even do a self-test page :(
So now I use a network printer and can't give a success story, sorry.
