If you have the SyJet already, by all means try the EPST driver. I would
not recommend buying based on that driver, at least at this time.

The driver is available only a loadable module, and has not yet been ported
to the PARPORT sharing system.

If you want stability, I'd recommend looking at one the devices supported
by the PARIDE suite, unless you have other requirements for the SCSI

Have a look at the SyJet's smaller sister - the SparQ - for instance.
