I recently upgraded an old 486 from RH5.1 to RH6.1.  The upgrade went OK
but the printer did not work in the new install.  The problem turned out to
be that the parport_pc module was not loaded by default when loading the
parport module.  The fix is to add this to /etc/conf.modules.  HTH

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
