    You'll need to recompile the kernel with modules parport, paride, friq and
    pcd unless you have them already. Then you need to make some device nodes
    /dev/pcd* , and possibly mess around with your BIOS to put the parallel port
    in the correct mode. should contain all the relevant information.


    I like it inside. It's nice there. There are sofas, drinks, cigarettes, books.
    There is shade. Outside there's nothing but the sun, the mindless drudgery of
    suntan cultivation, and the perpetual sound of droning voices, yapping dogs and
    convention shouting at you to enjoy yourself.
