Are your disks or other essential peripherals attached to
the ncr card? As a last resort, you might consider taking
that card out if you can and seeing if the scanner works
with sane in a simplified system.

Does this happen in all scanning modes, with all sizes of
images? Does your system lock up? Can you give the exact
text of the error message?
