Question Installing sane on Mandrake 9.1

I have been trying to get my HP3200C parallel port scanner running for some time under Mandrake 9.1 without success. After a lott of research, I found sane backends modified to work with the above hardware at

I have downloaded the RPM's and tried both upgrade and install. I get the following dependencies error. "libsane.1 is needed by sane backends-1.0.12-3.7umax_pp". The install is trying to install what is missing, I think. Here is the command I have used.

rpm --install libsane1-1.0.12-3.7umax_pp.i586.rpm libsane1-devel-1.0.12-3.7umax_pp.i586.rpm sane-backends-1.0.12-3.7umax_pp.i586.rpm

I'm doing this as SU.

I need help understanding how to determine what the dependency failure is, and where to get code to install to fix the dependency issue. Is there a log RPM puts error information in?

I have looked at the package manager in the control panel, but can not find "libesane.1"

I have spent a lot of time looking at forums, and there are a lot of people asking how to make a parallel port scanner work. I have not found any answers yet. Not sure why, other than parallel port scanners are difficult to get working. Any help will be appreciated.
