parallel port scanners and printers

Having had great success with this forum's help with my CD Writer, I know you can help me with my scanner and printer.
The scanner (Mustek 6000P) and printer are attached to the same port. The printer is fine but the scanner is not recognised.

Do I -
a) Convert the printer to USB with an adapter and keep the scanner on LPT1
b) Convert the scanner to USB
c) Add a parallel port
d) Come to terms with the fact that I only scan images once in a blue moon and forget this and just try to enjoy SuSE 7.3 Pro

Thanks in advance
