    Yes, it is.

    Yes, I believe so. The card is connected to the scsi port on the scanner
    that is closest to the power switch, and the terminator is connected to
    the other port. (I've tried to switch these, but with the same result.)

    >3) Is the scanner recogniced under windows?

    No, I have tried with NT4 and Win98, and cannot get the scanner to work in
    those. When I first bought the scanner, I used Win95, so I believe (or
    hope at least) that the problem is the driver (VistaScan). I haven't
    tried the scanner with Win2k, because I don't want to mess up my
    installation (I recall that VistaScan isn't that uninstallable ;-))... The
    problem in windows is "link error", and I guess that can mean that either
    the card, the scanner, or both are damaged. However, as I said, I hope
    that it is the driver that doesn't work.
