Those instructions look complete to me. If done correctly (and if that part still works under Wine) your program should be able to access in/out ports assigned to the parallel port. As for devices - just make sure your user have full access to them:

sudo chmod a+rw /dev/parport0
sudo chmod a+rw /dev/lp0
