Yes, certainly, just like any other USB device. Once it is connected,
the USB subsystem should give the standard device information. You
might try on another computer also, and with a different cable, in
case there is some hardware issue with either the PC and/or cable.

The 8800F and 9000F both work with 4800dpi already, the only new thing
with the 9000F is the 9600dpi resolution. The 9000F has twice the
number of rows of CCDs.

SANE repos probably in a month or so. Distors who knows....

Already in SANE 1.0.21. Just install it and you are supported.
