Can you tell me what kind of card it is? PCI or ISA? What's written on
the chip?

Many low-end scanners (Mustek, UMAX, etc.) are (or used to be)
supplied with a DTC card that was only supported by Linux using a
patch, but even then I could never get it to work.

As far as SCSI is concerned, it's probably better to invest $25-$30 in
a decent PCI SCSI card with a Symbios chip (usually 53c8xx). Just make
sure you have the right cable to fit its connector.
