The backend that comes with SANE 1.0.1 won't work if you are using
a 2.2 series linux kernel. But if you get the source and replace
the snapscan sources with the version 0.7 backend available at

Then that should work. If you've already installed binary RPMs for
SANE 1.0.1, you'll need to deinstall them and get the sane source

But if you really need to get this fax sent now, I'd boot windowsif
you have it and use the AGFA scanning software.

Let me know if you have further problems,
