    I (Linux novice) tried to connect my PC and Laptop via parallel cable and PLIP.
    Unfortunately PLIP (on the PC) uses the interrupt IRQ=255 ... and not IRQ=7 (which is defined in the BIOS) - so I got (with ping) 70% packet loss.

    * How can I set the IRQ to 7 (maybe with modprobe or ifconfig)?

    Thanks for help
