Oh, that's news for me. This id is used for most GT-6801 based scanners.

It shouldn't be too difficult.

Some general tips:

- use the firmware that came with the scanner. Don't use one of those
  from my page, because they are for different scanners
- use override "mustek-bearpaw-2400-cu" in gt68xx.conf

- edit backend/gt68xx_devices.c (the Model struct for the
  mustek-bearpaw-2400-cu), the explanation/declaration is in gt68xx_low.h
  set is_cis to SANE_FALSE, maybe you must adjust other parameters, but
  keep this for later
- try scanning without calibration first (scanimage
  --coarse-calibration=no --quality-cal=no)
- scan small parts of the image only (-y 50 -x 50)

- try some resolutions and modes

When anything doesn't work, send me a debug output, e.g.

SANE_DEBUG_GT68XX=255 scanimage --some options... 2>log >image.pnm

together with the command you used and what the scanner did.
Please send it to me personally, not the list, because these files get
rather big. And please send me the firmware for your scanner.
