The vpo(4) manpage does not mention this device, but if it uses the same 
parallel-to-SCSI interface as one of the other Iomega products listed then 
it might work. vpo is not part of the default GENERIC kernel so you'd 
either need to load it as a module or build a custom kernel to include it. 
You'll also need scbus(4) and sa(4), but they are included in GENERIC.
