Hello Ben,

usually PCI add-on cards don't use the standard port 0x278, 0x378,
0x3BC and the standard IRQs 5 and 7. But the linux parport_pc driver
should work with them just fine. I haven't used the parapin library,
if it uses direct port I/O it should be moved to the trashcan. The
linux ppdev driver will work with any parport recognized by linux.
Look at http://people.redhat.com/twaugh/parport/html/ppdev.html for a
description how to interface the ppdev driver with ioctl(), it is
really easy.
