Upon rereading the document, I have to agree that it is not obvious.
What is stated is that the parallel port sharing code is not available
in 2.0. Fortunately, 2.2 will be out soon - and this problem will
be history.

When I complain that people don't read the document, I am mainly referring
to the fact that I need to see the verbose=1 dmesg output, and to know
the distribution and kernel version before I can help.

I'm sorry if the tone of my responses is sometimes overly strident.
