[Wine]adding LPT port to wine? Acrobat 5/PDFWriter installation problem

I'm using the official wine-20041201-0.1 on Sue 9.1 (i386). I used
winetools 2.10 to facilitate my wine installation and it was a godsand. I
have installed Office 2000 and so far so good, but I like to extend my wine
functionality just a bit more.
I like to install Acrobat 5 (not reader) with PDFWriter on my wine
installation. The problem I have is that, during the installation, I get
the following error message:
"Acrobat PDFWriter requires a LPT1: printer port. Setup could not find this
required port. The PDFWriter component will not be installed. To install
PDFWriter, add a LPT1: port and run setup again."
Can someone please tell me how to install a printer port to a wine
installation? I have searched quite a few documentations on this subjects
but none of them worked. First, I thought wine is suppose to auto-detect
any parallel/serial port if presents. Second, I have added a LPT entry my
~/.wine/config under Spooler but still get the same error message.
Any help is very much appreciated,
