well, spank my arse and call me charlie – stoopid me had not enabled 1284 modes for parallel port.
this is probably why my newly acquired laserjet printer doesn’t work via parallel (but fine, albeit slowly, via serial).

He’s also done a pretty good intro to kernel compiling (http://members.datafast.net.au/tmccoy/kernel_compile.html) along with the other easy-to-understand "How-To’s" that he’s put together.
