Alternatively if you have the scanner already and need a Linux
based solution in the short term, try Vuescan it claims to
support the scanner.

I suspect as the scanner is a Firewire/USB combo, that it is
basically a SCSI scanner hiding behind convertors. If you can try
plugging it into a Firewire port and is it recognised by the sbp2
module. You might have to run rescan-scsi-bus.sh depending on how
recent your Firewire is.

If so logging what the scanner does under Windows and/or Linux
via Vuescan is going to be a lot easier than using USB.
