Yes! I also found that I was using old style kernel parameter for parallel
port (lp=0x378,7). I reread the documentation and sources and changed that to
new style (parport=0x378,7 lp=parport0) and now it works fine. Now I feel very
stupid... Dunno why it booted with old MB. Only cosmetic problem is that
kernel autodetects parallel port to IRQ8 which it "never" can't be. Same
autodetection failure with both MBs.
