        In your previous message u had specified the o/p of 'lsmod' as below

        I would suggest an action ( I may be wrong too ). This was how I thought
of and it worked.

1. Remove the modules parport_probe, lp and parport.
2. Insert parport alone.
3. Try configuring using the 'printtool'( R H linux, i don't know the
equivalent in Suse).

        If it still doesn't work try inserting 'parport_pc module' after this.
Hope this works.
