Either use modprobe lp, which will consult modules.dep for you,
or insmod parport and then insmod lp. (I think you compiled
parport.o OK.)

For info, 2.2 kernels assign lp0, 1, dynamically to ports that are
found; 2.0 kernels assigned them statically, and lp1 was 0x378
merely because lp0 was 0x3bc (who's got one of those?).
