Indeed. Of course, you'll need to set the appropriate permissions for
/dev/parport*. If need be, any drivers that use /dev/port could be
made to run as root by setting permissive permissions on /dev/port,
although of course that's far less than ideal!
The libieee1284 project is progressing quite well. We support several
different platforms now.
