Yes, the printer works fine in Windows 95. I have an old Epson LQ 510, also.
I'll try hooking that up later and see if that helps. Though I guess
if Linux isn't even seeing the parallel port it shouldn't matter.
If it isn't seeing the parallel port now, why did it say it captured the
lp1 when I tried loading the lp module with the rescue disk? I never
tried printing while using the rescue disk. Should I switch to the shell
and try redirecting to lp1 while using the rescue disk?
