See if it detected your hardware first. Look in /var/log/messages for
the time that you inserted the module and see if anything relevant

You might also try "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" and see what appears.

If that shows your scanner, then you've got the right module. Add:

alias scsi_hostadapter tmscsim

to /etc/modprobe.conf
