That's only a rather harmless notice. If it bugs you, just do a 'depmod'
after changing modules.conf and it'll vanish.

First of all, try setting Port Address to a fixed value, e.g. 378.

Nope, my experience tells me, that no IRQ is needed. But experiment yourself
and change the line in modules.conf to

options parport_pc io=<address set in BIOS> irq=7,none

If parport doesn't report a device, I'd guess the error must be somewhere
else, f.i. in the cabeling. If you also have Windows running on the machine,
does it work there?
