To ALL who gave advice:
Thank you all and one. I took the majority advice and acquired a bright and
shiney new Epson 640u scanner. Install was fairly simply I followed the
directions in the SuSe configuration manual and I now have a scanner that
works correctly in root, but the scanner is not detected in user. Can anyone
help quide me as to what to change to get it working in user.

Thanks a million.
