    I have been trying to get redhat 7.2 to recognise my parport in ECP mode
    so that I can run some dongle enabled software under VMWare. For this I
    need VMWare to have a bidirectional parallel port.

    The port is recognised by linux but the only mode available is PCSPP

    The bios supports standard, bi-directional,ECP and EPP but all of these
    give the same result.

    I have tried the suggested workaround from the people.redhat site for
    VMWare and I have upgraded to VMWare 3.2 but this makes no difference.
