FWIW, I toyed around with the options mentioned in parport.txt, but for 
 the life of me couldn't get parport_pc to honor irq=none/dma=none (DMA 
 being the most obvious difference, beside polling vs. interrupt-driven 
 between how 2.6 and 2.4 handle the port).

So I set the port via the BIOS to SPP, thus deactivated DMA there, and 
 now it works even with 2.6.8.

pnp: Device 00:0b activated.
parport: PnPBIOS parport detected.
parport0: PC-style at 0x378, irq 7 [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
parport0: Legacy device
lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven).

cheers,
