[SATLUG] Parallel port problem with OpenCBM...

Howdy...

I'm trying to install OpenCBM 0.4.2a on Ubuntu 8.0.4...
I followed the instruction on this page pretty much line by line..
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=500905

The install went fine but the last command seem to cause problems,

sudo depmod
sudo modprobe parport
sudo rmmod lp
sudo modprobe cbm


bamse at bamse-desktop:~/opencbm-0.4.2a$ sudo modprobe cbm lp=0
FATAL: Error inserting cbm 
(/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/drivers/char/cbm.ko): No such device
bamse at bamse-desktop:~/opencbm-0.4.2a$

To troubleshoot I typed dmesg and got the following at the end,
[ 6014.341506] cbm_init: parallel port irq not configured: 0
[ 6060.762850] cbm_init: parallel port irq not configured: 1
[ 6063.103631] cbm_init: non-existant port: 2
bamse at bamse-desktop:~/opencbm-0.4.2a$

Looks like I have two parallel ports installed but they do not have an 
irq configured...
Anyone knows how to configure the ports to use interrupts ?

Please keep in mind that I'm a beginner so be patient with me...
