YES! This is the same problem.

-> The BIOS settings (Award on an ASUS P5A board) is
Parallel port mode: ECP/EPP
ECP DMA select: 3 (how can I use it?)
-> cat /proc/parport/0/hardware
Other BIOS modes do not fix that problem. So I decided to use the defaults...
parport driver is linked statcally into kernel.
