The lp support in potato (2.2.x kernels) has been
split into two parts.  You need to load parport_pc.o
and lp.o (in that order) or it won't work.  Any io or
irq parms must be specified to parport_pc.o and the
parport# specified to lp.o  Drove me batty for a while
trying to get the lp driver(s) to grab only one of my
three parallel ports.
