27.9.2 Setting Up PLIP
I have a laptop and a desktop. I have installed FreeBSD 6.1- RELEASE #0 
on both using the same CDs.

The laptop gererates  (in response to grep lp etc) lpt0:  <Printer> on 
ppbus0 but the desktop generates ulpt0: etc.

I have tried everything I can think of to get the desktop to generate 
lpt0; etc.

Also. ifconfig plil0 generates plip0: etc on the laptop but the desktop 
tells me that plip0 does not exist.  HELP!
