I have a new motherboard (P2BX), it has directions on setting the parallel port to ECP.  I feel I can do that OK, but how do I determine which DMA channel to use?

A step by step, from setting the bios to ECP, to setting the DMA would be appreicated.

Thanks,

Bo

boyoung,

The first thing you must do is enter the bios by pressing del at boot up when prompted,
Next you would enter advanced settings and then find the printer port, you can change an entry by using page up and page down. Do not change the address of the printer port leave it at 378 but you want to change the port type to epp/ecp, this should be the default setting for your motherboard, there are only 2 dma channels you can use 1 or 3 I recommend 3 as it is mostly free from any other devices, once you set these settings then press esc and then save settings and exit.  Once you reboot your system it will enable ecp/epp printer port and windows 95 will detect a new printer port. It is very easy to configure. If you need more help then please ask me.

Good Luck.
