    I have patched my kernel with the 2.4 patch
    or the linux-ppscsi.patch which worked just fine
    I can "modprobe" the "onscsi" module and it installs
    it, but I cannot seem to get the scanimage program to
    detect the generic SCSI device it is on. Below in
    var/log/messages it says something about sg 16 but
    nothing is detected on that port either. Does anyone
    have the answer for getting my scanner to work, I hate
    going to the local copy shop and getting my RPG
    character sheets copied, when I have a good scanner
    here, just cant get a scanner program to use it.

    -------Here is some of my error information.----------
