    Hi Luis,

    As far as I know, on a standard 2.2.x kernel, the only way to do direct
    parallel port access is to have root access (or give a user permissions
    to /dev/ports which is about as big a security hole).

    As a side note, you might want to consider libieee1284 if you want your
    code to be able to be more portable.
