    I found that out myself by now. I can't blame you for being late
    since I see it only hits the mailingslist now. :) I guess it
    bounced because I wasn't subscribed yet.

    It's hidden in a totaly different menu. You don't exactly think
    that if you enable parport that you have to go look under the
    character devices to enable it for user space. (The same counts
    for parallel printer support.)

    Thanks for the reply anyway. :)
