it seems to be more easy. I have a 2.4.18-kernel too. And this one 
already includes the ppscsi-driver suite. So you may just need to follow 
the instructions on http://www.torque.net/parport/ppscsi.html (as root):

         insmod scsi_mod
         insmod sg
         insmod parport
         insmod parport_pc
         insmod ppscsi
         insmod epst

         scanimage -d hp:/dev/sg0 --mode Color > hpscan

Maybe some of the modules are not available (scsi_mod) or already loaded 
(parport). Just see what happens.
