    OK, thanks. There it says:

    > io=0x378 irq=7 dma=3 (for DMA)

    But this doesn't look like the syntax for boot parameters, because boot
    parameters are space delimited. So to say this im boot parameter language,
    would I say append="parport=0x378,7,3"? It's my best guess, but I can't find
    any evidence for it in documentation.
