    The parport_pc module can't find your parallel port, by the looks of
    it. Is it enabled in your BIOS?

    I think that getting a Zip100 to work on this machine would be as much
    trouble, as the problem seems to be with parport_pc detecting the
    parallel port, rather than with the driver detecting the device.
