Hello Philip!

I'm a little bit sorry about my last mail with the patch to you. It was a
bit to early and there were a few bugs in it (mainly correct claiming
and releasing of the parport). I'll send you the corrected version as soon
as I've tested it better for correct operation. A new problem now is, that
my printer (a Laserjet 6P - attached to a normal printer port) prints a
garbage character and does a formfeed during the boot process.
