You need to install the packages "sane", "sane-frontends" and "xsane" 
from you Suse CD / DVD. The "sane" package already contains the 
snapscan driver, there's no need for a separate download of the 

The firmware file can be found on the CD that came with your scanner.

or u222v067.bin. See http://snapscan.sourceforge.net for details.
