parallel ecp mode and vpo

I have searched the net and found nothing good.
I did set my mainboard BIOS to use ECP transfer mode (dma 3 & irq 7).
I edited my kernel to:

device		ppc0	at isa? flags 0x8 irq 7

(is there a way to declare the dma I want to use?)
and when I boot I get:

Jul  1 10:36:42 delta /kernel: ppc0: <Parallel port> at port
0x378-0x37f irq 7 flags 0x8 on isa0
Jul  1 10:36:42 delta /kernel: ppc0: Generic chipset (ECP-only) in ECP
Jul  1 10:36:42 delta /kernel: ppc0: FIFO with 16/16/16 bytes threshold
Jul  1 10:36:42 delta /kernel: ppi0: <Parallel I/O> on ppbus0
Jul  1 10:36:42 delta /kernel: imm0: NIBBLE mode unavailable!

and my zip-100 drive does not get recognized. Is it possible to use vpo
in ECP mode?? EPP and compatible modes are just too damn slow.
