I also have problems with the parallel hardware on this board, though I
never tracked down the cause of my problems. When using my scanner I see
occasional stoppages (the kernel waits forever when receving data) or
data errors, particularly when DMA or interrupts are involved. I only
use IEEE1284 modes, not generic printer routines. Perhaps this
particular hardware is at fault.
