what you have is the 25 pin scsi cable, usually used on old macs. just
because it looks like a parallel port does not mean that it is one. i bet
the scanner end of the cable looks different?
it will not work. you MUST get a scsi card. if you are in the US, send me
private email. i will send you a 25 pin adaptec pci scsi card for free. i
have a case of them collecting dust. works great with linux.
