could someone tell me how to setup the scanner? here is the output as root. as you can see the command 'sane-find-scanner' found the scanner 'found USB scanner (vendor=0x05d8, product=0x4002, chip=GT-6801?) at libusb:002:002'. ok now what do i do to set it up in my system?

root@amd:~# scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
root@amd:~# sane-find-scanner

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
