[techtalk] Parallel port mode

OK, so it turns out (found my mother board manual!) that you change the 
parallel port mode in the bios by going to:



Parallel Port Mode (on the right, fourth down)

EPP allows didirectional parallel port operation at maximum speed; ECP 
allows the parallel port to operate in bidirectional mode and at a speeed 
faster than the maximum data transfer rate; ECP+EPP allows normal speed 
operation in a two-way mode.

Hope this helps you.

	Let me add to that my own plea; could someone
explain what all these parallel port modes mean?  SPP
and ECP and...
