As Yuri mentioned in another post already, this scanner is supported by
iscan + non-free plugin.  Packages are available via:


The reason that yast2 cautions about it use is most likely because the
plugin is non-free so you cannot help yourself or have others help you
when you have a problem with it.

Hope this helps,
