David, can you send us a few lines, those that report the detection, 
from your /\var/log/dmesg file?

And have you added the vendor/model numbers in the list contained in 
linux/drivers/usb/scanner.h and recompiled the kernel?  Or, added 
an alias with those numbers in /etc/modules.conf?  I prefer to do 
it the former way as that means everything is properly detected and 
recorded in dmesg for later reference if a problem arises.

I note that this addition to scanner.h has already been done for 
this scanner, using 0x04b8 and 0x0110, is this not correct as shown 
in dmesg?
