That scanner is supported by the gt68xx backend, not mustek_usb. Here
is more documentation: http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/gt68xx-backend/

The main point is that you get the firmware from the above mentioned
page and copy it to the location listed in man sane-gt68xx. 
After that you should be able to scan at least as root (scanimage -L;
scanimage --help; scanimage >image.pnm). If scanning as normal user
doesn't work, look into the documentation for your distribution, it
should be explained there.
