The configuration of the programmer is such that you can have it as a Slave or a Master and configure it depending on that. All it needs is a simple remapping of the PC parallel port kernel driver in linux.
Here are the ATA port address:
0x1F0 - Primary Master ( Not preferred since you might have your HDD attached here)
0x3F6 - Primary Slave
0x170 - Secondary Master
0x378 - Secondary Slave
Then in linux its just a sequence of commands:
modprobe parport_pc io=0x170 irq=none,none,none
(For location of the programmer on the Secondary Master port 0x170)
Linux doesn't like this might throw up some error messages.
Thats all your port is now remapped and the simple AVRdude command works:
avrdude -p m32 -U lfuse:w:0xe2:m -U hfuse:w:0xd8:m
