    Here's what he says:

      I believe that would be this Winbond W83977TF-AW chip. But if that's
      a floppy controller or something equally ludicrous, don't laugh too
      hard... It's a bog-standard builtin parallel port on my
      bog-standard Aopen AX6BC. Hmm, I just thought of something, perhaps
      it's set to STANDARD in the BIOS. That might cause problems. I'll
      check that tonight.
