    Well, libieee1284 will work with or without ppdev, to some extent.
    Advanced modes like ECP aren't implemented in libieee1284 yet but they
    will be soon.

    The ppdev module is available as a patch to Linux 2.2.x as well,
    although it is less tested than the 2.4.x code. Take a look at
    <> for a pointer to the patch.
