Recompiled kernel again this morning with parallel support checked. I'm
almost positive it was on last compile as well. But I still have
problems. When I boot up I get message: "lp no devices found."

I'm wondering if I could have chosen something else in menuconfig that
would interfere with parallel printing but if so I sure can't figure out
what it is.
