Regarding your question as to where my parport is ,
It is pretty normal , not an additional fitting as far as I know.

I think that you must have IRQ 7 assigned to the printer port in your
bios. If you disable it, in the bios, the above should work.

it is either the bios or the board. I don't recall if you said the
printer port was built onto the board or if you have a seperate card
See above. The printer does not need an IRQ. So that it can be
available to other boards (network cards, etc) you can use the append
= to none.
If you have many IRQ's to spare, lucky you, yes, you can change the
none to 7. I just hate to waste an IRQ on something that doesn't need
