You have more serious problems. You will not be able to make a CD
in mode 0. Please check the CMOS settings for your parallel port and
set it to "EPP" mode (do not select any mode mentioning "ECP"). If you
can't do that, try "bidirectional" or "PS/2" mode. Read the documentation
in Documentation/paride.txt or at
for information about the 'delay' setting and force it to zero if you

If you haven't already created the /dev/pg0 device node - follow the
instructions to do that too ;-)

And, finally, if you have problems, please follow the directions and
send us some dmesg output when you load pg with verbose=1.
