I had the very same problem and I got my answer here (tanx again people) but you don't have to uncomment the whole section only these 2 lines in the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file:

/sbin/modprobe parport_pc in the "PC parrallel port support" section and
/sbin/modprobe lp in the "Parrallel printer support" section

That did it for me, uncommenting the whole section made some error message at boot time.
