ECP parport, howto?

I have an asus P2B-ls with a parport that should be ECP (and that what I
set in BIOS), when I load the modules parport, parport_pc and ppdev:

parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7 [PCSPP,TRISTATE,EPP]
ppdev: user-space parallel port driver

Is there something special to do to obtain ECP capabilities (I need it
to run VMWARE which I would like to try...).

I have already tried to give it the dma 3 which is reserved for parport.
