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
any way.

Shouldn't matter but I'm not a parport expert.

man sane-mustek_pp

Some important things:

* run as root
* uncomment mustek_pp in dll.conf
* edit mustek_pp.conf if necessary

Ask Jochen Eisinger <jochen.eisinger@gmx.net> if you are stuck. He is
also on the #sane IRC channel (irc://irc.freenode.net/sane) most of
the time :-)
