[PARPORT] ppa 1.4 parameters

I have just compiled the ppa 1.4 into the 2.0.33 kernel and am having
some problems
compared to the standard ppa. I have the following parameters passed to
kernel by LILO: 'lp=0x278 ppa=0x378' which according to the comments in
the code
should be fine:

 * Command line parameters (for built-in driver):
 * Syntax: ppa=base[,mode[,use_sg]]
 * For example: ppa=0x378 or ppa=0x378,0,3

But I am getting this error when I boot: 'Feb 5 19:49:57 furball
kernel: PPA: I only use between 2 to 3 parameters. '
Which I have found in the code, it appears I could just add a 'case 1: '
before the parbus_base assignment.
Is this correct?

    switch (ints[0]) {
    case 3:
        ppa_sg = ints[3];
    case 2:
        ppa_hosts[x].mode = ints[2];
        parbus_base[x] = ints[1];
        printk("PPA: I only use between 2 to 3 parameters.\n");

I have loaded it as a module and I get about 10 M/min, is this common?
Is the 'Failed Intel bug check'
anything to be concerned about?
