What happens if you leave the options off, i.e. 'insmod parport_pc'? What
does 'dmesg | tail' say after that?

In 2.2.9 there are some changes that may help with your problem: one of
the detection routines is improved, and certain types of port are handled
better. In addition, if the port isn't detected but the user specified
that it really exists, we believe them, but printk some warnings about
why we don't think there's a port there.
