[parisc-linux] Parallel port woes

i'm still having complete lockup of the machine when i send a printjob to
the local parallel port

it seems to be completely independant of the printing system i use - both
lpd & cups cause the same lockup

nothing actually seems to get as far as the printer, but cups seems to be
working ok, as i can print to the same printer shared up from a windows

using kernel 2.4.17-32  on a 712/60 with an hp deskjet 500 on a standard
parallel cable

am i missing anything obvious ?

does the 712/60 have a standard printer port or do i need a special cable ?
