This sounds like an older laptop - models of this age often had
custom/strange hardware, so it may be some hardware that nobody's
encountered before.  Especially since it appears to be failing around the
parallel port probe.  You may want to check the various BSD hardware
compatibility lists (mostly FreeBSD) to see if anyone else has tried a BSD
flavor out on this hardware.
