Disable serial and parallel ports
I wonder if it is possible to disable the parallel port and the 2 serial ports within linux Debian. I have disabled them in the BIOS, but the system still shows IRQ 3,4 and 7 used by the ports. I have an older AT style system and like to free up these 3 IRQs. Does anybody know the trick?
Linux Debian 2.6.32-5-486, K6-III, ASUS TX97-e.
