I just tested 41_99 of this patch and its not too bad, Gerhard 
Jaeger can supply it, or a link to its location.  You'll need to 
either add an alias definition to your modules.conf file, or 
compile the identity stuff into the kernels drivers/usb/scanner.h 
and rebuild the kernel.  As the usb stuff is an ongoing project 
in the kernel tree, I can't verify it will work with your 
hardware, or with a kernel less than 2.4.17, which is what I'm 
running ATM.

You'll also need to diddle permissions on /dev/usb/scanner0, else 
root is the only one that can run it.  0666 seems to be ok.

If you can program a bit, welcome to the group.  Gerhard Jaeger 
is the co-ordinator for this particular branch/patch.  I'm just a 
twiddler and tester who once thought he could program back when 
computers still had 8 bit busses. :-)
