I'm thinking, how is a scsi scanner plugged in, I
don't really see how that works; I know how the
windows only agfa snapscan 1212p is done, but... that
p is for paralell right? The HP Scanjet 5100C paralell
A4 might be an alternative right ?
I didn't really find that resolution to be honest
where is a link to such product info?
