I have this beast, and it works good enough with Windoze, but I have real
problems with it on Linux. Their supplied SCSI card (ACARD), have support
in Linux kernel, but it seems that it's nonstandard OEM version, as
insmod hangs, when scanner is powered on.
I've been told, that some backend is good for this scanner, but anyway you
need separate SCSI card.
