    Yes, it works under Linux on my desktop [RH 8.0 / 2.4.20].

    It is a Dell Latitude XPi Pentium Classic 133MHz laptop.

    paride and bpck6 load as expected, but pcd hangs shortly after finding the
    parallel port.

    After crawling through my kernel configs on both machines [desktop, and
    laptop] I find that my desktop has no support for the lp device, while
    my laptop has lp.o compiled in.

    Am I correct in suspecting that this is the problem? Should I remove
    support for the lp device, and/or make it a module?
