Use the 'dmesg' command to see the most recent kernel messages. Then
you'll see the actual complaints from the drivers.

Have you tried playing around with the BIOS setting of the parallel port?

The 'parport' code itself doesn't really have a version number. As for
ppa/imm, I think that the latest code is in the 2.2 kernel.

If you run out of things to try, you could take a look at patch-2.2.7-ctr
(; it's against clean 2.2.7), which fixes
a bug which might affect you.
