It seems that the Microtek PP scanners use the OnSpec 90c26 parallel port
adapter configured as a SCSI controller. I am currently working on
this adapter (as time permits). I can't make any promises about
when a driver might be available.

Once the driver is ready, you should be able to use SANE or any other
software that works through the Linux generic SCSI driver (sg).

Stay tuned for announcements.
