You could try Y here.

That means that you have a parallel port, and that the 'parport' code
knows about it.

This means that ppa has registered itself with parport.

That means that port accesses work, at least to some extent.
The fact that 2.0.36 works for you with the same hardware indicates that
it's either a parport bug or a ppa bug. There is a known problem with
ppa: if your BIOS is set to ECP+EPP, it may not work. You could try
fiddling with the BIOS setting for the parallel port.
