Setting the LPT port or mode

The default mode for an LPT connection is ECP/EPP. If you are having problems with your LPT connection, set the mode to Bidirectional 8bit or Bidirectional 4bit. The next time that you create a boot disk, the mode is reset to the default, ECP/EPP High Speed.

If you have multiple parallel ports and want to connect using a port other than the default LPT1, use the LPT port option to specify the port into which your cable is plugged.
