The name is OK: It's the name that is used (and reported) by the 
Scanner internally. The Perfection name is
just on the box you bought the scanner in :-)

So xsane is working... Did you compile 1.0.13 yourself? Potentially on 
a system that already had an older version
of Sane installed?

The strange thing is that I've seen a number of problem reports lately 
with Red Hat 9. Is it possible that
RH did something wrong with their distribution?
