This question was asked back in Jan 0f 1999. See http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Printers/Q_10114286.html?query=CHANGE+LPT1+TO+LPT3&clearTAFilter=true.  The accepted answer to this question was "This question has been dormant since 5-31-1999, Are you still interested in this issue or should this question be archived?"  So, is it possible  to change LPT1 to LPT3 without installing 2 additional PCI cards?  OS is Win95.  Thanks!

physically no (as in your other? if you have multiple lpt cards, then the bios automatically assigns which lpt port goes to which parallel port - if one port the system only uses lpt1)
virtually yes (chg prtr prop's to capture LPT3, therefore anything going to lpt3 actually goes to lpt1)
