parallel port scanner

i have a samsung parallel port printer/scanner/fax the works properly under windows. i'd like to setup the scanner to work with suse linux 10.0 (i already have suse printing working properly with this unit so i'm hopeful i can also get the scanner portion operational).

can someone recommend a howto or tech document on setting up parallel port scanners under linux?

thanks in advance.
