I want to use my medion9848 scanner,attached to the parallel port,
under linux (redhat 7.3). It is a mustek scanner. My problem: When using
scanimage for example, how to define the scan device? I tried
-d mustek_pp:/dev/lp0, but this was rejected by:

        scanimage: open of device mustek_pp:/dev/lp0 failed: Invalid argument

The parallel port is configured correctly - my printer runs at /dev/lp0
without problems.

Any idea?
