Hi folks!

Just to let everyone know after about the 
7,858,939,058th :-) google I found something that REALLY 
helped get me going!


The big secret was that I had to build sane/sane backends 

USE="usb" emerge sane-backends

After that the scanner showed up and works GREAT!

Happy, happy, joy, joy :-) :-) :-) !

Now I can dump the w98 partition with extreme prejudice and 
save that plustek for a trip to the shooting range :-).

Klaus:  Especially, thanks for the encouragement to keep me 
plugging away at it, turns out to have been well worth it.  
Really nice scanner under linux!

Thanks & take care es 73, V.
