OK. Now the machine's been down for the first time in 58 days. I
went into the BIOS and set the parallell port up to use EPP (and IRQ7
(I think)). I removed all forced setting of I/O address and IRQ in
conf.modules, did a depmod and "cat .kderc >/dev/lp0" and the printer
These are the results from /var/log/messages:
Jun 23 18:07:33 doohan kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [SPP,PS2,EPP]
Jun 23 18:07:33 doohan kernel: parport0: Printer, Canon BJC-4200
Jun 23 18:07:33 doohan kernel: lp0: using parport0 (polling).
Thanx to Tim and Gunther for their help!
