Apparently it uses the Shuttle EPST adapter. There is an ALPHA grade
driver for it available via the parport homepage. However, the project
was on hold for many months while I worked on the PARIDE stuff.

I'm currently working on a redesign of the parallel port SCSI drivers
(as a family) and intend to include support for tape drives and scanners
in the next revisions. Dave Campbell is also working on this. Right
now, we are trying to factor the 6 or so existing drivers to try to
find the correct framework on which to build.

I now have SCSI tapes, disks, and CD-ROMs to test with - and a parallel
port SCSI scanner is on its way to me.
