Interfacing Sparkfun Fingerprint Slide Scanner

Has anyone had any luck with interfacing the arduino with this fingerprint scanner here: http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8881

I haven't read very many success stories nor any posts/comments that show any useful code. All I want to do is be able to scan a fingerprint and read back the unique fingerprint id.

Hoping you guys have some thoughts. Thanks.

I haven't read very many success stories nor any posts/comments that show any useful code.

Seems like on page 6 of the forum there was useful code and a schematic for a PIC; shouldn't take too much to convert that code to the ATMega/Arduino.

I am not saying it will be easy, and others seem to be doing some work on it (googling for "ARA-ME-01 fingerprint arduino" turned up some hits on this forum); it's kinda a pricey item, and success isn't guaranteed - but maybe you can risk it and create a library for it yourself?
