Read Documentation/parport.txt:


If you use kmod, you will find it useful to edit /etc/conf.modules.
Here is an example of the lines that need to be added:

        alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
        options parport_pc io=0x378,0x278 irq=7,auto

KMod will then automatically load parport_pc (with the options
"io=0x378,0x278 irq=7,auto") whenever a parallel port device driver
(such as lp) is loaded.
