got the solution too, it was in the BIOS and I set the printer to
ECP and this is the message now with it:
ppc0: <ECP parallel printer port> port 0x778-0x77b,0x378-0x37f irq 7
drq 3 on ac
ppc0: SMC-like chipset (ECP/EPP/PS2/NIBBLE) in COMPATIBLE mode
ppc0: FIFO with 16/16/9 bytes threshold
ppbus0: <Parallel port bus> on ppc0
plip0: <PLIP network interface> on ppbus0
lpt0: <Printer> on ppbus0
lpt0: Interrupt-driven port
ppi0: <Parallel I/O> on ppbus0

and all is well. Silly when you think of it, but it helped.
