Isn't that all about port I/O-adresses; your first LPT-port must be in
address 3BC (second in 378 and third in 278, if there are more than one
port). In new pentium and some 486 machines the first port is 378

The former style is "PS/2"-style, if I remember right, and the latter
"IBM"-style, or vice versa. =) Allthough in XT:s first port is normally
3BC, because it's located on monochrome adapter.

So strange are these IBM-clones. You hate them, but you can't live without
them. (quite as said in the game M.U.L.E. about that wonderful worktool,
mule...)  :-)
