Results were less than optimal:

#  /usr/local/src/sane-backends-1.0.6/tools/umax_pp -p -t 255
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of umax_pp_low to 255.
[umax_pp_low] *** Direct I/O or ppdev unavailable, giving up ***
failed to gain direct acces to port 0x378!

Here's the relevant parts of /etc/modules.conf:

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7

Here's from /var/log/messages:

Dec 15 20:07:06 trc2 kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378, irq 7

HELLLP!   ;)

Seriously, thanks for any help you can render.
