well... maybe i should get this add-on parallel card exchanged for another
one... looking at the card... it's a no-name card... without the name of
the manufacturer anywhere... but on the card... it says ECC/EPP... and
TC020... which i guess is the model number for a single port card... there
is room for another chip... and jumpers... so i guess this is the single
port version..

the chip is..


and on the parallel connector... is written TTN 995346... but i think that
is some kind of warranty number..

it is possible... that there was some sort of IRQ conflict... or address
conflict... but i made sure the i/o addresses... and interrupts... of both
parallel ports... were different... and that there were no conflicts..
