I can't say for sure about the COLOR Quickcam, but if you are talking about
the B&W Quickcam, this is BS. The Quickcam driver polls each parallel port
until it finds the camera. In the B&W Conectix Quickcam manual, page C-2:

Q Will Quickcam work with add-on parallel ports?
A Yes. If the port is configured as LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, or LPT4.

I have lots of friends that use lpt2 or 3.
