The way it works is like this:
kmod triggers 'modprobe lp'
lp depends on parport
when lp initialises it asks parport for a port
parport triggers 'modprobe parport_lowlevel'
modprobe sees 'alias parport_lowlevel xxx'
If you don't have kmod but are using modules, you can put something
like 'above parport parport_pc' (is that the right syntax?) in
If you aren't using modules, it should just work.
