Run the command /sbin/lsmod and have a look to see if you have modules 'parport' and 'parport_pc' loaded. If not, use modprobe to load parport first, and then parport_pc. These modules are needed to support any parallel port device.

You can also look to see if you have a /dev/lp0 device on your system. I'm guessing you have only one printer. If you have more than one, it could be /dev/lp1 etc.

Sorry, I can't answer this question. I have never compiled a kernel. The two modules I gave you are the ones I loaded as KLM's to get my parallel port working. You may need to post a new thread to get this answered, unless someone who knows answers.
