Ok I got it to work. The problem...as always is SCSI :) I have found at
least one configuraton that actuallly produces scans. its all pretty
nifty when it works , now I just need to get better cables or drop the
zip drive or something...blah.
Anyway thanks for the responses and sorry for the bother.
