I just got an HP 6200C scanner (SCSI and USB) from work for free.  I'm 
hoping to use it on my LInux box, and not have to resort to installing 
it on my Windows 98 PC.  I'm using the USB connection (I don't have a 
SCSI controller in either PC anymore).  I am running Red Hat 7.1 with 
the sane package that is distributed with it (1.0.3-10).  I don't plan 
on going to the trouble of compiling source code, etc.  If it comes to 
that, I'll use it via Windows.

I'm not sure my problem is even with SANE, though.  My Linux box doesn't 
seem to be detecting it at all.  I expected that after I connected it 
and turned the system on, Linux would detect it at boot up using Kudzu, 
or the USB system (which is running--I see it, and it hesitates longer 
when it searched for USB devices than it used to).  When I try to get 
the device list using "scanimage", it returns nothing.  What's up?
