is the port enabled in the BIOS?  Is it enabled as SPP (Standard 
Parallel Port), EPP (Enhance Parallel Port)?

It also looks like you might need to include in your C program something 
like the following;

#include <io.h> 


#include <asm/io.h>

and ensure the paths are found by the linker....or copy the files 
somewhere like /usr/include (but be sure not to overwrite existing files 
with same name, if they exist).

Hope that helps.
