I agree, and I've been having the same problems.  Well technically a
friend rather than me, but it's an odd problem.  I eventually
wondered if it was a BIOS problem, and found that the BIOS had the
parallel port set to an odd mode.. SPP or EPP is okay, but I think
bi-directional modes cause problems.  Setting it to a simpler value
seemed to partially solve the problem (or maybe just change the
error message ;)

I think the first thing to check is whether or not your kernel is
actually recognising the parallel port: check for an /proc/parport,
and more specifically what it says in /proc/parport/0/hardware.

I'd love help with this problem too.. though my friend has a
BJC-2000SP, but that's also supposed to be compatible with the
bjc600 for filter purposes.


Dare I disturb the universe?  You bet I do! :)
