Omega Zip Drives on FreeBSD 8.*

I need to get an old parallel Omega Zip drive to work on a freeBSD 8.*
to transfer some archives to new media.
I have a problem with getting the OS to read the Omega Zip drive so it
can be seen in dmesg to manually set the id correctly in /etc/fstab
Flash drives and floppies show up but not Parallel Omegas. My wifes MS
machine has no parallel input and my several FreeBSD boxes do but wont
find the hardware. I used to use Omega Zip under FreeBSD 4.11. Thought
these had been transferred years ago but they were only found recently.
Any suggestions appreciated.
