Hello Willi,
There is a more current page for that scanner, dated 2006/Oct.
No developer has yet been interested in pursuing that model.  If you
are interested in doing so, read the links in that page for directions
on how to help.  The chipset used remains unknown, and there are 
hints on where to look for that information.  If you want to use a 
sane-supported scanner, choose from one that is currently supported.

Good luck,
