if you intend to admin a unix or unix-like machine of any type, you MUST know
and remember the root password.

ok, well, at least you can talk to the scanner as root. to get other
users to talk to it, you have to do some sort of permissions

else can chime in here....

in order to get the thing to actually work, i guess you should forward
this email to rene directly, and see if he has any suggestions.
