Scanner install probs?

Trying to install my scanner to my old Gateway 2000 machine running Win 98.

Connecting the scanner through parallel port but the PC does not recognise that anything is connected to the LPT1 port.

I have aslo tried to install a known, working printer but again the PC does recognise anything connected to the port?

Any suggestions

go into your bios and make sure your scanner port is set as bio-directional

went into Bios and made sure port was bio-directional.

Still the port will not detect anything connected to it
