I have a plustek 9636P parallel scanner, and running RH 7.2. I have removed
all sane from my system and downloaded the sane-backends 1.0.6, sane

fine, I figure either way should work.
now I install the sane-frontends 1.0.6 and the latest xsane.
now scanner seems to be working, except xsane does not find it!
so I resort to "sane-find-scanner" and still nothing. so I try scanimage -L
and still nothing.
can I please get some help here, I have installed and uninstalled and
manually removed sane from all dirrectories and installed even more on both
SuSE 7.1 and RH 7.2 with SuSE running the newest 2.4.16 kernel and RH running
the 2.4.7-10 kernel.
overall problem, I can get the scanner light on, but nothing else.
Note: If problem is distro specific, I prefer suggestions for the RH machine.
