Hmm, works fine for me ....

Hmm, proberbly get's things wrong when the printer is on, try loading
~# insmod lp io=,0x378 irq=,7
irq 7 is the default, and the commas are important, or you'll have that
port called lp0 (but if that's ok ....;).
As an added bonus you'll get the parallel port set to use irq's rather
than being polled (tunelp lp1 -i 7 would do the same thing after you were
told it was going to poll).
If that works for you, you can put it in your /etc/conf.modules:
options lp io=,0x378 irq=,7
