    Did that (after normal boot, that is with disfunctional parport):

    timesink:/home/agn/parport/lssuperio-0.66 # ./lssuperio
    lssuperio V0.65 (EXPERIMENTAL) (<<<<< this is really v. 66 - agn)

    However, the bottom line is that the PARPORT is fine after bios start and
    broken after SuSE V8.0 boot. It seems rather daunting to locate where things
    go wrong (the boot process does tons of things and is distributed over many
    scripts, rc-files, configs, ...)

    So could you just tell me how to enable the #$#!! parport. All I want is
    my printer back and I don't mind to run a stupid little enable program
    before loading parport_pc.
