Woooh. Breathe! Breathe. Try to relax. So, just to clarify. You do
realise that the architecture has nothing to do with the paralell port
working or not working, right?

We don't do homework, we despise HTML email, and we generally can only
help if the information presented to us is pertinent to your problem.
You've done relatively OK in supplying information, but what you haven't
-- Stated your problem.
-- Provided context for your problem.
-- Told us the commands you were using.
-- Given us output based on those commands.
-- Availed us of any error messages present.
There's nothing like leaving it till the last minute, eh? Time
management is something that comes with experience, alas. Might I
suggest though that if you're having these problems *now* -- that they
ought to have been mitigated in your *design*, rather than continually
hacking away at whatever program it is you're having to write in order
to control the parallel port.

I've been too honest with myself, I should have lied like everybody else.
