PCI / PCIExpress Parallel port in SCO 6.0.0

How do or what do I need to add PCI / PCIe (PCI Express) parallel ports add-on adapters to OpenServer 6.0.0? OpenServer 5 could see PCI slots but OpenServer 6.0.0 (Original CD or the Re-cut one) required a maintenance pack to be installed? Is this right and how do I check to see if these work?
# 2  
You should install the latest maintenance pack, and any other patches that are available.
Since the parallel port driver is no longer supported (see 'man parallel'), I would suggest that you acquire an ethernet/parallel adapter or print server instead.
# 3  
With SCO 6.0.0 install, the teo PCIe gives errors during start-up. After MP3, 'hw' lists them as "simple communication" after. Does this tell me that the parallel ports are working?
