Thanks Bruce, no, I did not think to try that at all. I should have,
but was contending with some other things and the customer talking to
me while I was working. Didn't think of some other things either until

Once I find the scanner, I will then edit the sane files accordingly to
make it work. Thanks again and good to see you participating again on
the SuSE list!
