Hello Sane-developer(s).

I am not sure that this is the right place to ask this quetsion but I
feel that I have to do it anyway.
I am having trouble with an Mustek Paragon 600 II N (firmware 1.0).
It is scanning and it scan really good grayscale pictures. But
colors..... it can't do it. The best result is that the colors are
little displaced (they don't really match in placement so the picture
becomes fussy). That is in 300 dpi. In any other resolution it becomes
some kind of random white line/picture mixture.

I have looked throught the mail list archive but I can't really
understand how you fix this. There is o problem only in the end, it is
in the whole picture.
Setting the "linedistance-fix" option (I am supposed to do this in the
file under /etc/sane.d/mustek.conf, right? I have also tried the other
file that is under /usr/..... mustek.conf but that don't seam to have
any influense at all) don't fix the problem. It does however enable
color scanning, without that option so is the PNM files not saved to
disk for me when I try to scan something in color.

Is it possible to get this scanner to scan in color under Linux? If so,
how do I do (simple version please, I am not directly used to recompile
programs and such stuff)?
I am using the SANE version that is avaible to download from Redhats
server (version 1.0.1-3 i belive) and I belive I am using Linux kernel
2.2.x (Redhat 6.0).
I hope you can help me, I dont want to be forced back to Windows

Best regards and thanks
