    Did you try 'insmod parport_pc io=0x378,0xd000 irq=7,none'?

    There are lots of different cards with the same PCI vendor and device
    IDs, but which differ in subdevice ID. Unfortunately, the 2.2 parport
    code isn't up to telling these apart without a lot of help; the 2.4
    kernel _does_ do that though, so it should be alright.
