You should run this command as root from the command line. If you want
to make it permanent, add the follwoing to /boot/device.hints:
This puts the port in ECP mode (flag 0x08), and disables the IRQ (flab
0x20), thus enabling polling mode.
If your chipset doesn't support ECP mode (unlikely for a reasonably
modern one) use 0x20 instead of 0x28.
The hint will take eddect on the next reboot. The lptcontrol command
will take care of things until you reboot.
