Does sane-find-scanner list the device?
If so, what does scanimage -L say?
Does trying this as a regular user or as root make a difference?
If USB, does lsusb list it?
If SCSI, was it powered on when you booted?  Does it show in the dmesg output?
Distribution?  Version?  Architecture?

Hope that helps,
