The point I was making is just that modprobe... will work as well.

Yes, they are both modules and the /proc/scsi/scsi order is the
expected one with the scanner on sgb and the cd on sga.
I suppose that if changed the order in my /etc/conf.modlues the order
of the driver letters would reverse. Since I've not set my /etc/sane.d/microtek.conf
file to have the line /dev/sgb I better not change the conf.modules.
But, I still don't understand why I don't get auto-magic loading/sensing
of the scanner like I used to. FWIW, the lines I added to get the writer
options ide-cd ignore=hdd # tell the ide-cd module to ignore hdd
alias scd0 sr_mod # load sr_mod upon access of scd0
pre-install sg modprobe ide-scsi # load ide-scsi before sg
pre-install sr_mod modprobe ide-scsi # load ide-scsi before sr_mod
pre-install ide-scsi modprobe ide-cd # load ide-cd before ide-scsi
I think this came right out of the cdburner-howto.
Ya, sure... But thanks for taking time to reply.
Well, I'm off on a brief holiday. Maybe when I get back I can get
this to work perfectly.
