	I do not have other device available to check the port. I think
the modules are enabled and what I am not sure is if PLIP is disabled.
How could I check this? I enclose here some outputs that could be of help

a) lsmod output

b) cat /proc/parport/0/*

MODEL:Lexmark Z22-Z32;
DESCRIPTION:Lexmark Z22-Z32;
base:	0x378
irq:	none
dma:	none
modes:	SPP

c) lpq (just after sending an ASCII file to the printer with lp)

Printer: lp@nst12  'z32'
 Queue: no printable jobs in queue
 Status: job 'root@nst12+334' removed at 21:47:06.076
 Filter_status: lp is ready and printing

It seems to be ready but as soon as the file arrives it is removed from
the queue. If I just do cat file > /dev/lp0 as root neither it complains
nor it prints anything. 

	I hope this information could give you a hint. Thanks for your
interest. I posted a similar asking to a DELL Laptop users mail list and I
got any answer from there. Sorry for the mistakes in my first messages,
I am a full newbie in mail lists and I may be prone to this silly
