Thanks for all the replies!

Final desperate attempt to integrate parport and printer worked though I am
not sure why. Turned on inetd services. Then read once again the big suse
handbook and there on one page there was a recommendation to use yast in
runlevel 1. after init 1 and modprobe parport_pc and modprobe lp started
yast for n-th time. Integrate hardware/printer/parallel complained again
that there is no such parallel port , continued as usual ignoring the
message with choosing printer driver and wow the test did actually print.
So a sigh of relief and confusion. Thought the inetd may be the reason.
Disabled again inetd and still prints. In conclusion it seems that the
suse configuration tool yast and SuSEconfig are best to be used in
runlevel 1.
