I don't have any suggestions regarding the compilation or using an RPM
(if you have specific compile-time errors you want to post, that might
be helpful), but I've got a UMAX Astra 1200S scanner that worked great
once I got a SCSI card installed.

Sadly, my SCSI card was ISA and my new PC (that $180 'Fry's special' :^) )
is a little too new and cheap to have any old-school ISA-style slots.
So, I'm going to either replace the SCSI card with a PCI one, or just
replace the entire scanner (probably for something USB), since ironically,
that might be cheaper!!!

In the meantime, for emergency purposes, you can always pay out the nose
to use the computers somewhere like Kinkos.[*] :^)

poker.  I hope he was winning!  DAMN!
