I have not seen a parallel port in years or a device needing a parallel 
port. I did not even know a PCI-e parallel card existed. Perhaps people 
just don't know what the problem is or can be bothered with technology 
from the eighties.

If you need it for a printer then why not get a usb<->parallel cable:

If everybody who does *not* know the answer to a question would answer 
"saying anything" as you suggested then this mailing list would generate 
a gazillion messages per day and become completely useless because of 
the gazillion "I don't know" answers.

If that parallel card is so important to you then why don't you buy a 
Red Hat subscription? At the end of the day you get what you pay for...
