LPT1: to work under VM player


I've created Virtual machine on Suse 10.1 for win 3.1.

How would i get parallel port / LTP1 to work under Win 3.1.

vmplayer shows this while starting

"Cannot open LPT1: No such file or directory
Virtual device parallel0 will start disconnected."

Such message also comes for Lan card, serial port, although cd, floppy
is running well.

How to get LPT1 port work in VM player?
