zip and parport printer sharing??

If I try to use my printer, downstream from a Zip parallel device, I get "Status: cannot open, /dev/lp1 - device not configured"

But if I power down the Zip pre-boot, it works fine.

I am running Debian 2.1R4.

From Zip-Drive mini-HowTo:
"As of kernel version 2.2.x you can do parallel port sharing. This means that you can plug the printer into the zip drive and use both the zip drive and the printer. I tried this on my machine
                          and it worked like a charm. "
