Just build parallel port support in as a module, and load it when you plug
something in.  An interrupt shouldn't occur unless the interrupt is handled.

I have an xp1800+ too, with the via kt266 chipset, (ASUS A7V266-E board), and I
don't get this error at all, even when nothing is plugged into the parallel
port, probably because I have parallel support as a module instead of builtin.
