If you want to access pp scanners using saned, saned should run as user
root. If not, make sure, user/group saned exists.

Maybe saned isn't started, you can test this by telneting the saned port:
# telnet localhost 6566
If the connection is refused, the xinetd config is wrong. If you can
connect, you can continue:
stop xinetd and start saned from the commandline:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd stop (or something like that...)
# saned -d128
now you should get some debug output from saned (in your syslog there should
also be some interesting stuff)
Logged in as an user try this: (assuming you use bash)
$ SANE_DEBUG_NET=128 scanimage -L
Either this or the saned should now give you some further hints, where to
search for possible errors.
