I'm trying to install a scanner which requires an enhanced parrallel port. How can I determine if my computer has one? I have an HP 8175 Pavilion running Win 95.

furby3,
Your computer has an enhanced capability parallel port.
You may have to enter the CMOS setup to configure the port.
Full specs can be found here:

You should be able to do that by pressing delete key at bootup.
Some computers prompt you as soon as power is turned on for the way to enter CMOS or BIOS setup.

You can turn on the Enhanced PP in your setup in the parallel port section. You also might consider to install an EPP driver and look if it works. Check the HP site though with the link you have been provided with
