Don't go deleting the modules from the system - It would break a couple of the 
init scripts run at boot time. Check /etc/modules and comment out lp & co if 
they are listed, and run "update-rc.d -f cupsys remove" - This last command 
removes the cupsys init script from the list of services started at boot 
time. Without booting up a BDI-4 box, I'm not sure if there is anything else 
that might load the parport modules. I'll check on that tomorrow for you.
