I presume the motherboard does not have an LPT interface... then

NCIX.com - Buy nGear PCI 2 Serial Port & 1 Parallel Port I/O Controller Card - 01030519 In Canada..

Add in IO card
All's well that's Haswell

Why not use one of these ? This will free slots on your PC - I've used this for my old HP DeskJet 712C printer that I sine upgraded to an EPSON with USB. You won't need a parallel port, plugs to USB, and is compliant to the standards, supports bi-directional printing, and faster.
