Hi,

No (except from the LCDs internal controller). You only need a quite
straight-forward wiring to your LPT port.

I guess you have already checked the main page
http://lcdproc.omnipotent.net/ . I also have some pages about HD44780
connection to the LPT, http://robijn.net/lcdproc/ . Also more links
there to authors of drivers etc.

Regards,
Joris
