The documentation recommends that when you have a problem you should
try loading pg with the option "verbose=1" and include the output of
'dmesg' in your report. That really does help me to understand what
might be going wrong for you.

But, do you have the lp driver in your kernel (either built in or
loaded as a module ?) In 2.0 kernels, there can be only one parallel port
driver in the kernel at any point.
