PARPORT — Parallel port support


If you want to use devices connected to your machine's parallel port (the connector at the computer with 25 holes), e.g. a printer, ZIP drive, or Parallel Line Internet Protocol (PLIP) link, you need to say yes here.

Please read Documentation/parport.txt and drivers/parport/BUGS-parport for more information. For extensive information about drivers for many devices attaching to the parallel port, see

It is possible to share a single parallel port among several devices and it is safe to compile all the corresponding drivers into the kernel. If you have more than one parallel port and want to specify which port and IRQ will be used by this driver at module load time, take a look at Documentation/parport.txt.
