Configure 2nd Parallel Port - how?

I'm running Fedora Core 2 (i686), kernel 2.67-1.494.2.2.
The PC has a motherboard Parallel Port at I/O port 0x378.
I installed a PCI Parallel Port add-on card for some control
(not printing) applications. Kudzu automatically
configured parport1 at I/O port 0x9800 per the following
output from '/sbin/lspci -v':
02:02.0 Communication controller: NetMos Technology: Unknown device 9805 (rev 01)
Subsystem: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic: Unknown device 0010
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 9
I/O ports at 9800
I/O ports at 9c00 [size=8]
I/O ports at a000 [size=8]
I/O ports at a400 [size=8]
I/O ports at a800 [size=8]
I/O ports at ac00 [size=16]
Port 0x9800 works fine for some apps, but other apps require an
I/O port address below 0x3FF.
How can I configure parport1 for I/O port 0x278 (as it would be
jumper-configured if this card were on an ISA bus)?
Thanks for your help.
