Ahh, but it does work.  Not at a 100% calibrated state mind you, but 
I haven't had any great problems with the stuff I do.  Copies are 
quite close to the same color to my experienced eye.  The only 
quibble I have is that someplace in the conversion to drive an 
epson photo 820, a just noticeable bleaching of the highlights 
occurs by the time it gets back to the paper.  But, this also 
occurs from my digital camera to the paper.

Now, to make it work, what distro/revision are you runnng, and since 
some mobo's have busted usb chips (the early via chipsets are 
hopeless)  toss that info back at us and somebody should help you 
get going before too long.
