Ugh, I should have said before that I am currently running as root,
and expect no permission problems. Also, the same thing happens under
OS/2 where I would expect no such problems as well.
Here's the info anyway:
bash# ls /dev/scanner /dev/sgd -la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Aug 31 20:28 /dev/scanner -> sgd
crw------- 1 root root 21, 3 Jul 18 1994 /dev/sgd
Once I get it going as root, I'll worry about setting up a scanner
