I tried to switch the BIOS parport mode from EPP (that give me the correct compatibility for EPP with cat /proc/sys/dev/parport/parport0/modes)
to ECP & EPP mode that give me the sequent result:

~$ cat /proc/sys/dev/parport/parport0/modes

that seems wasn't compatible with EPP mode, but when i trie to load the esp module with

~$ modprobe esp

i could see in the dmesg log this message:

[4294719.954000] epst.0: epst 0.92 (0.92), Shuttle EPST at 0x378 mode 2 (PS/2) dly 1 nice 0 sg 16

[4294720.009000] Attached scsi generic sg0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0,  type 3

that talk to me that the scanner was succesfully detected!!

After have changed the permission of the scanner i succesfully detected the scanner with sane-find-scanner!!!

thanks a lot for the help!!!
