for the parallel port try modprobe parport then the modprobe lp
what xserver did you install ? make sure you get the right one then try xf86config the server is XF86_Mach64.
modprobe parport does nothing. I was able to get some errors with modprobe --all lp*. I got /lib/modules/2.2.19/misc/lp.o: invalid parameter parm.io insmod /lib/modules/2.2.19/misc/lp.o failed insmod lp* failed I was never able to get the installer to accept the parallel port with any parameters or with no parameters, so I guess I don't really have parallel port support.
pnpdump has pages of output and it's beyond me. I did figure out that the sound card is Card 1. I do know that IRQs and DMAs are available for it.
I got a bit further with X. I made a symlink of /dev/mouse to /dev/psaux and now XF86Setup doesn't crash. I can't get X to use 1024x768x65536 (it always goes back to I guess 320x200). And I never get any windows either. If startx even works (and most of the time it doesn't) I just get a gray screen with a big X pointer sitting atop it. Nothing happens after then and I have to power off to recover.
