Looks like they should work fine as they can accept Step/Dir inputs at 5v, so as long as your parallel port can output 5V you should be fine.

this is input characteristic

STEP+/-
Optically Isolated, 5-24 Volt. Minimum pulse width = 250 ns. Maximum pulse frequency = 3MHz
Function: Step, CW Step, A Quadrature, Encoder Following, CW Limit, CW Jog, Start/Stop (Oscillator mode), general purpose

DIR+/-
Optically Isolated, 5-24 Volt. Minimum pulse width = 250 ns. Maximum pulse frequency = 3 MHz
Function: Direction, CCW Step, B Quadrature, Encoder Following, CCW Limit , CCW Jog, Direction (Oscillator mode), general purpose

EN+/-
Optically Isolated, 5-24 Volt. Minimum pulse width = 250 ns. Maximum pulse frequency = 3 MHz
Function: Enable, Alarm Reset, Speed 1/Speed 2 (Oscillator), general purpose
