Wow, what a story ! :-)
I never would have thought that there would be someone else anywhere
with the hardware and same weird idea ! :-O :o)
As posted earlier, turns out I don't need any extra software and that I
just need to reload the card's module, but thanks for telling me about
scsiadd, that reminded me that I should have at least searched Synaptic
for 'scsi', and I would have found it instantly !
Always search Synaptic, always search Synaptic, Synaptic is your friend,
Synaptic is your friend... one more time... Always sear... ;-)
I am glad your scanner (and office !) are still in one piece, btw...
