    It may be that you don't have the dependencies in your conf.modules, and
    that you have to insmod everything in the right order:

      insmod parport
      insmod parport_pc
      insmod paride
      insmod on26
      insmod pd

    Normally you will NOT have to specify any ioport for the pd module as it
    is supposed to autoprobe for it.

    The above modules can all be loaded automagically with the correct
    incantations in /etc/conf.modules and /etc/auto.master if you have both
    kmod- and autofs-support in the kernel (IIRC you should have that, if you
    have a standard SuSE 6.x kernel).
