It's the job of the distribution to generate the /dev/sg entries, or,
if you use devfs, they are generated when there are sg (SCSI generic)
devices like scanners.

Hey, that's a parport device. You won't need SCSI support, /dev/sg* or
/proc/scsi in this case. And I don't think that devfs is involved in

Some important things:
* run as root
* uncomment mustek_pp in dll.conf
* edit mustek_pp.conf if necessary
Ask Jochen Eisinger <email@example.com> if you are stuck. He is
