[vox-tech] Slackware 10 printing revisited

First of all I would like to thank all who responeded to my 
original post.  They verified that I was/had been 
proceeding correctly.

I am still unable to print with my HP 4L printer.

	Printer connected to Parallel port
		PC Parallel Port Support section in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules 			     
		Parallel Printer Support  section in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules 	

	Using hpijs driver

	root@OCELOT:/etc/cups# lp0 
	bash: lp0: command not found
Last night, I saw another Slackware 10.0 box and asked the 
user to enter http://localhost:631/admin in Konquerer so I 
could show him my problem.  He had no printer set up so we 
proceeded.  At he second screen {Device for .......}, there 
appeared two entries for Parallel Port. in additon to those 
		Internet Printing Protocol (http)
		internet Printing Prootocol (ipp)
		LPD/LPR Host or Printer
		SCSI Printer
		Serial Pot #1 to 48
		USB Printer 1 to 16
		Windows Printer via Samba

These Parallel Port entries are not present in the like 
screen on my Slackware box.  

He said that I probably had somehow disabled the parallel 
port in my bios since the kernel was not seeing it.

Seemed logical so this am, I have be wrestling with the fact 
that my bios has parallel set to auto and it is recognized 
in the bios bootup screen as active on 378.  

How can I induce my kernel (2.6.7) to see the parallel port?  
And, yes I did reboot to the original 2.4 kernel and I have 
the same problem.
