    I have a Microtek V310 parallel port scanner. From what I've read, it should work. I have downloaded the ppSCSI suite of drivers and patched my kernel to support the onscsi protocol module. When I manually install the modules:

            insmod scsi_mod
            insmod sg
            insmod ppscsi
            insmod onscsi
    I get the following error: "/lib/modules/2.2.13/scsi/onscsi.o: init_module: Device or resource busy" when I try and load the ppscsi or onscsi modules.

    I have read whatever documentation that I could find on parport, scsi, ppSCSI, etc but I still don't know what I'm doing wrong. Do you have to explicitly associate a parport port with the scsi drivers? How? Can the scsi device be detected without rebooting the system? I'm not very familiar with using SCSI (and the HOWTO is not much help for this)

    Additional Info:
    1) I have an EPSON printer connected in series after the scanner and I have no problem printing with it.
    2) Here is a dump of my conf.modules
            alias scsi_hostadapter onscsi
            alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
            # Options
            options opl3 io=0x388
            options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
            options parport_pc io=0x378,0x278 irq=none,auto
    3) lsmod dump:
            parport_probe 2940 0
            parport_pc 5528 0
            parport 6524 0 [parport_probe parport_pc]
            ppscsi 10028 0
            sg 14400 0 (unused)
            scsi_mod 54616 1 [ppscsi sg]

    Thanks for any help or info
