That's what i did Andrea...

Only parport and parport_pc are compiled into the kernel... paride and lp
are compiled as modules... and the printer is acting normal at boot...
(it just sits there... which is what it should be doing hehe) i didn't put
anything in conf.modules or anywhere else for EPAT... so basically... the
printer works fine now..

So i do not think epat.o and pd.o were the problem... i think lp compiled
into the kernel was the problem..
