I get it. I've been replying to the sender instead of sane-devl..

I can answer a few of your questions. I use Visioneer OneTouch 5800 on a
Mandrake 9.1 operating system. I have a scanner0 at /dev/usb I believe
I hace an unsupported scanner. sane-find-scanner found USB scanner
vendor=0x04a7 (Visioneer) and product=0x0226 (Model 5800). I have
inserted these into /etc/modules.conf.

Since I don't have that luxury, I have to choose to write a SANE driver
for Visioneer 5800 or try to use a generic libusb driver. I don't know
how to do either one of these, so I must call for HELP!
