Hmmm. I'm getting a bit out of my depth here. How about

   ls /proc/scsi/

after loading epst I get: 

   device_info  epst/  scsi  sg/


   cat /proc/scsi/scsi


   Host: scsi5 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
     Vendor: HP       Model: C5190A           Rev: 3740
     Type:   Processor                        ANSI SCSI revision: 02


   cat /proc/scsi/epst/5 

(replace the 5 with the appropriate number) gives

   ident:           epst 0.92 (0.92), Shuttle EPST
   base port:       0x378

   tot_errs:        0
   parport device: parport0

(for some reason EPP mode doesn't work well on my hardware).

I wouldn't expect that to help until the other stuff is

It might help to use 

  modprobe epst verbose=1

and see what is logged then, but I'm not up to speed on this.
