If you have parport as a module, you want to do something like:

# insmod parport.o io=0x378 irq=7

or, if you are using modprobe, put the line:

options parport io=0x378 irq=7

in /etc/conf.modules.

If parport is compiled statically into the kernel, add "parport=0x378,7"
in the LILO command-line.

This is all in Documentation/parport.txt.
