That's good news.
You cannot use permissions on "/dev/scanner" to open access.
Provided you've got a stable hardware environment, i.e., one
which doesn't have SCSI devices added and removed on a whim,
you can add a group "sane_oper", add whomever you want to that
group, "chmod 660 /dev/sgd" and "chgrp sane_oper /dev/sgd".
At least that's what I do.
If you have SCSI devices added and removed, the device used to
access the scanner will change. You'll have to change which
device has the appropriate permissions. I believe the device
filesystem in 2.4 kernel will address this problem.
