jeff, any fujitsu with EOX2 on the end is not supported by the sane 
fujitsu backend. as far as i can tell, those scanners share no 
electronics with the 'C' versions of the same model. in fact, i have a 
4110EOX2, and it is really an MA1509 Mustek chip. i expect that the other 
EOX2 models are similar.

the fi-5110C and the fi-4120C (and C2) work pretty well, i have about 100 
of all three. the fi-4120C (no 2) is a little flaky on usb, but the other 
two seem a little better behaved.

the 5110C is noisier, and perhaps only 3/4 the speed of the 4120, but they 
use the same comm protocol.
