I successfully installed debian 4.0 etch via chroot and debootstrap on a
old sony vaio laptop. For this i used the grml [1] live-cd. Then i 
installed my Brother MFC 9880 scanner and printer as described on
the brother homepage [2]. I added the following to libsane.rules, so the 
scanner is recognized after a reboot.

# Brother MFC 9880
SYSFS{idVendor}=="04f9", SYSFS{idProduct}=="011b", MODE="664",

After configuring inetd and adding the saned user to the scanner group,
scanning over the network works like a charm.
Thank you for your hard work.

Best regards,
