Hm, I don't have anything in /proc/parport... in fact I don't have a
/proc/parport directory at all.  This would seem to be bad....

You mentioned in an earlier message something about BIOS settings?  Do
you think that has something to do with it?

I think I shall have to sit down and read up on parallel port stuff.
I didn't even know until a couple days ago about the parport stuff,
I'd only heard of /dev/lp0 etc....

Thanks loki, and John, for your help!
