I'm trying to get my HP Scanet 3200C scanner to work with Mandrake 9.0.It's a parallel port scanner hooked together with my Epson Printer.I've installed the PPSCSI 2.4 kernel patch and recompiled the kernel.I can insmod sg,ppdev,ppscsi successfully but not the ONSCSI module. Get an init_module no such device message.Documentation says I should use the Umax_pp Sane file for this scanner.

The printer is lp0 > parport0 address 0x378.I've tried creating /dev/scanner and linking it to parport0.I also tried /dev/sg* > no luck.
In the sane-backend-tools directory I've tried the sane-find-scanner /dev/parport0 test > it opens the parport then I get a message that it found a USB scanner but needs Vendor ID & Product ID numbers to identify it.

What files do I have to edit? Do I edit the Umax_pp file,etc/sane.d/dllconf & /etc/modules.conf files.If so what do I put in there? I have no idea what the scanner vendor & product ID numbers are.I did get a long device ID # in Windows but that hasn't helped.

Is there a command that I can use to probe parport0 that would show the devices connected to it?
ParportO:PC-Style at 0x378 [PcSPP,Tristate,EPP]

With the above info > can anyone tell me:
why won't the onscsi module load?
mknod /dev/scanner is unsuccessful?
