You need to replace /etc/sane.d/test.conf with the path and filename  
to your firmware file. The firmware file can be found on your windows  
driver CD and is named esfw52.bin. For additional information see  
http://snapscan.sourceforge.net . If you don't get it to work feel  
free to contact me.
