Please attach your `uname -a`. As I've noted I'm running
FreeBSD burp.bogstomp.org 7.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE #4: Mon

/dev/uscanner0 is not being created on my installation. From
the manpages (excepting those that were modified) sane appears to not
want uscanner as it is presently configured to use usblib which uses
ugen*. Ugen* can't see the scanner with uscanner in the kernel or
loaded as a module on my installation.
first step to autoholic recovery: realising the 3000 lb gorilla on your back
does not become you.
