Should it? My machines running 2.0.36 are all printing on /dev/lp1
and that's to LPT1 and 0x378. I'm not sure why you're using 0x278
in the BIOS (conventionally LPT2).
OTOH my machines running 2.2.10 all print on /dev/lp0 (but that's
still LPT1 and 0x378).
This is similar to many other people who have reported their
configurations when surprised by the change from /dev/lp1 to
/dev/lp0 caused by migration to 2.2.x kernels.
