The parallel port CD-ROM drivers do not support the audio play ioctls at
this time. I do intend to add this functionality - in a manner compatible
with the "universal CD-ROM" layer - sometime in the next few months. It
is currently item number 3 on my to-do list.

By the way, the old 'bpcd' driver is no longer supported, these changes
will happen in the PARIDE suite which is now part of the standard kernel.
