	forgot to mention that when you got those 0xF8, 0xD8 or 0xC8 instead
of something errors, you have to reset the scanner by:
	- powering it off
	- unplug parallel port cable
	- plug parallel port cable
	- powering on the scanner

	If you have a printter attached to the pass-through port, you must
power it off befor doing the reset.
