Hey Folks,

	Some of this is going to be out of the scope of this mailing list (usb info)
but I'm stuck.
	I have a clients machine in my shop who wanted to get away from the M$
Kludge so we loaded on Debian. All went lovely until I attempted to setup his
Musteck 1200 CU USB scanner. Then I fell on my face (no! not literally)
	At connection (plugging the scanner into the usb port) I recieve:
hub.c:  USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 3      but
there is NO /dev/usb/scanner, /dev/usbscanner, or anything else new. So, I
need to ask and find out what I'm doing incorrectly, which part of the docs I
missed, etc.
	I am running 2.4.16 with    /usb/hid    support for the APC UPS Backups 350
(working well too).  I find that in   usbview    I see both devices
(scanner/ups), but only the ups is assigned a /dev location. What am I
missing???  :--(  And what system info do you folks need?
	The following is a cut from dmesg:

usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c: registered new driver hub
uhci.c: USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v1.1
uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0xef80, IRQ 19
