    I am trying to get parport to recognize the
    interrupt so that I can use ftape with the
    Trakker parallel tape drive.

    According to /usr/src/linux/Documentation/parport.txt :

    >If you compile the parport code into the kernel, then you can use
    >kernel boot parameters to get the same effect. Add something like the
    >following to your LILO command line:

    > parport=0x3bc parport=0x378,7 parport=0x278,auto

    putting this line, as it, in lilo.conf and
    running lilo gives an error of "Syntax error near line x in file
    /etc/lilo.conf" .

    I have seen some little reference to the exact syntax needed
    here. Is it something like [append="parport=0x378,7"] ?
    As this is lilo, I would really like to get this right
    rather than risk not being able to boot the system...
