I have a microtek ScanMaker e3 with a parallel port to SCSI cable that
works under Windows/95, so I believe my hardware is okay. I set the
printer port to EPP mode in the BIOS. I downloaded the source RPM for
the 2.4.18-18.7.xBOOT kernel, patched it with the ppscsi patch, built
it, installed it, but the scanner still won't work with scanimage.

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
[jeffs@sixl jeffs]$ sudo sane-find-scanner tool
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
# Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating system.
# If using Linux, try "modprobe sg".
# No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make
# you have loaded a driver for your USB host controller and have
# kernel scanner module.
# Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# detected by this program.
[jeffs@sixl jeffs]$ more /proc/scsi/scsi

I speculate that something is wrong with the ppscsi module, but I
haven't a clue what that might be.
Can anybody offer me any advice please? Is ppscsi going to be
integrated into future kernels or is it going to remain a kernel patch?
