In the dell boxes I can choose:


not ecp+epp modes.

In another box with a gigabyte mobo I have selected ecp+epp and the driver 

parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP,TRISTATE]
parport0: irq 7 detected

but, following your advice, chosing _only_ epp the driver detects it.

parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [PCSPP,TRISTATE,EPP]

Howeber in the dell boxes it fails, although I select _only_ epp.
