Fedora Core 2 is using a 2.6.x kernel, which does no longer support
the scanner kernel module. You need to use libusb (which is installed).
What you need to do in order to make this scanner work is add this line

Assuming the hotplug system is setup correctly in Fedora Core 2, it
should just work. If not, you may have to configure hotplugging.
You should however be able to scan as root user.
