If the default kernel doesn't support your SCSI card you will need to
find or compile one that does. Knowing what chipset it uses will help
there. Once your card is recognised you have to set appropriate
permissions on the device files so non-root users can use the scanner.

Once you have got your SCSI configured properly it should be easy. Just
  apt-get install xsane
and you're good to go. If it doesn't go start by reading man sane-scsi
and sane-hp then post your logs and other details here.
