    I hope it's possibly not a hardware-broken thing, but a driver one: this
    morning I tried to get a _new_ NetMos parallel-port only pci-card working.

    No success and it seems to be comparable to your problem, I think.
    Printer is switched on and plugged in and is read by parport. Everything
    looks good but printing is not working through lp1. (lp0 (mainboard) works fine)

    cat /proc/pci

      Bus 0, device 9, function 0:
        Communication controller: PCI device 9710:9805 (NetMos Technology) (rev 1).
          IRQ 9.
          Master Capable. Latency=32.
          I/O at 0xb000 [0xb007].
          I/O at 0xa800 [0xa807].
          I/O at 0xa400 [0xa407].
          I/O at 0xa000 [0xa007].
          I/O at 0x9800 [0x9807].
          I/O at 0x9400 [0x940f].

    first I/O added in modules.conf (as said in Linux_M.txt from vendor-driver-CD):
    options parport_pc io=0x378,0xb000 irq=7,none


    parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7, using FIFO
    parport0: Printer, Kyocera FS-1000
    parport1: PC-style at 0xb000 [PCSPP,TRISTATE,EPP]
    parport1: Printer, HEWLETT-PACKARD HP BUSINESS INKJET 2200
    lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven).
    lp1: using parport1 (polling).

    Any hints?
    (The Linux_M.txt from vendor-driver-CD calls the second listed I/O from
    pci-card "ECP/EPP config registers", do I have to do something with that?
    Is that similar to 0x778 of parport0?)
