parallel support is the same if not better in 2.4 :)
make sure that you have parallel support compiled in your kernel (or as a
module).  or, use a serial printer ;)

apt-get install lprng magicfilter

will get and help you setup local and or remote printers.
or read /usr/share/doc/HOWTO/en-html/Printing-Usage-HOWTO.html
after doing apt-get install doc-linux-html
