How do I access the parallel port in VB.NET?

I just want to know how to access the parallel port and control it (access the port register) in VB.NET.
You'll access the parallel port the same in .NET the same way you would in a Win32 application: through calls to DeviceIOControl to a device driver. Probably the best place to get started is to get Direct Parallels Level One Parallel Port Developer's Kit to get started.
