    I have an ECS K7S5A motherboard (SiS735 chipset, No LAN). I can't get
    the printer port on this board to work properley either. In DOS
    however, the port works as I would expect.

    I've pretty much given up on this parallel port under Linux, I guess the
    Canon printer it was connected to wasn't at fault at all and shouldn't
    have been smashed to pieces.
