    Really thanks for the answer... so I can hope...!!
    I'm waiting for the final release of the 2.4 kernel, I think to be not able to
    work with developer code, even if this is almost good.
    Maybe, now that I know how to use the scanner, I would try to upgrade to the
    2.4. I'll tell you if I'll be able to do it. But please give me sometime!!

    bye and thanks
