When I start my ancient Balck Widow 4830 Pro scanner (7? years okd and with the original driver written for W98) on my new computer (XP Home) It tells me that I should set the BIOS I/O mode to EPP. On W2K (my last OS) this was no problem but on my current setup I can't find the I/O setting when I go into the BIOS.
Here are some details gleaned from Belarc Advisor which might be relevant.
