    A> Can you try setting in the BIOS EPP mode?

    The port is already set to EPP mode and this is likely the smoking gun.
    My guess is that this is not a ppa problem but a parport problem.

    $ cat /proc/parport/1/devices
    ppa
    lp
    $ cat /proc/parport/1/hardware
    base: 0x278
    irq: none
    dma: none
    modes: SPP,ECP,ECPPS2
    $ cat /proc/parport/1/irq
    none

    I'll delve a little into parport-lore and see what I can discover.
