Is there a step by step instruction for setting up sane?

This equipment did work some time ago when using FC4 Linux
but has not worked with FC5.

sane-find-scanner shows:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0, product=0x0701) at libusb:001:002

and scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

Yes, yes, and yes, and I have read a lot of material but nothing that 
makes clear what I need to do next.

The scanner is an HP5370c Scanjet for which I gather that I need the 
avision.conf file but I'm not sure I have that in the right place or 
that it is commented correctly.


# This are the possible options. Normally any scanner
# should work just fine without them - and they are only
# needed for test and debugging. So if you experience problems
# and you solve them with enabling options here, please notify
# the SANE/Avision maintainer: Rene Rebe <rene at exactcode.de>

#option disable-gamma-table
#option disable-calibration
#option force-a4

#scsi FCPA
#scsi HP
#scsi hp

#scsi /dev/scanner
#usb libusb:002:003
usb 0x03f0 0x0701

As I said this same set of equipment did work perhaps a year ago but I 
can't seem to get things right again with this up to date FC5 system as 

Any help will be much appreciated.
