    I've added a 2nd printer and assigned it to the LPT 2 port (for which I had to buy a seperate parallel port and add it to my tower). It works great but it knkocks out my CDROM. My CDROM returns when I disconnect the printer cable from the tower. I've tried changing the position of the card but that has not helped at all.

    Why does this happen and how can I fix it?

    My thanks in advance
    Karen
