Nprinter LPT1 problem on Windows 98

We use Novell IntranetWare 4.11 and Nptwin95 utility on Windows 95, but, when i did install Windows 98 this message appers on my screen:
".OFFICEJET.PVR.TSH.VV is configured to use LPT1.
  LPT1 is not supported on this workstation."
So, i want to know what happend with my port on Windows 98.
Thanks...

Check to see that it's LPT1 ECP and not just LPT1 - check bios/windows/novell & insure all agree.

I have a strong feeling this is a Compaq workstation.  If not, this solution will work anyway.
1- run regedit and search for "portname"
2- when it finds it you will notice that the text is in all CAPS.
3- edit the text of "PORTNAME" so it reads "PortName"
4- close regedit and open again to make sure your change took..
5- restart the computer.
