What a chance, im quit new in this mailing list and I subsribed because I
bought a very cheap Mustek MFS-1200SP Pro. I unfortunately donŽt get it to
work on Linux so as on Win95 yet.

It could be that the Mustek scanner you mean is a Paragon 1200 Pro. You
can find a discription under DonŽt worry, the language of
the web site is english. Anyway, your story looks very similar like my. I
bought the Scanner as a "rest choice" (sorry aubout my english) for a
price very closed to 70 pounds.

I just contacted the Mustek Support about my Win95 problems. If IŽll get
back some interesting news, IŽll let you know, but I think that your
decision would not be for the Mustek one now.
