Just a warning: both of these specific things have given us troubles
in the past. You may be hitting an unresolved bug with some backpacks :-(

I guess you didn't notice the remarks on the web page and in paride.txt
that suggest building PARIDE as modules first ?

We need to see the kernel messages that are produced when you load
the module version of pcd with

        insmod pcd verbose=1

Also, please be sure that you did not include the "lp" driver in the
kernel (the Parallel Printer Support option).
