I was wondering if anyone has used any parallel-port finger-print scanneing 
devices with FreeBSD. In specific, I am trying to use the device to 
authenticate in a custom program I am currently writting. Without going into 
messy details, I'm just looking for experience with these things, (regardless 
of type/manufacturer/etc), I do have several different types of readers 
(including some newer USB readers), but am primarily interested in using 
those which interface via the parallel port.

If anyone has any experiences, places to read about, suggestions, comments, 
or otherwise... please reply, (I am no longer subscribed to freebsd-general, 
so if you could reply directly to my email address that'd be great).
