    hey tim,

    is the alias line in conf.modules the one i already have:

    alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc

    yes it does. however, it is necessary for me to do this:

    insmod /lib/modules/2.2.15/misc/lp.o

    for the printer to work. is there a good way to do this?

    also, to do this automatically when i want to print, will i need to
    configure the kernel daemon or the kernel module loader?

    thanks again, matt
