There is absolutely nothing there for that time.

No attached devices.

tmscsim is the scsi adapter driver, not the scanner itself, and 
system-config-control Hardware Browser does see the adapter (and lists the 
driver as tmscsim.

Back to the beginning, in case I've missed something.

The scanner is set to ID 3, terminated.  It is the only scsi device attached.  
At what point should Fedora 'see' the scanner?  I've seen no indication that 
it does see it.

I got further than this three years ago when I tried to run the scanner under 
Mandrake, so I know that it's possible to get it recognised.  I failed to 
install the driver patch then, and it froze the system, but at least it tried 
to work.  I only mention this to indicate that it isn't an incompatible piece 
of equipment.

Is there any relevance at all in the fact that all my FC4 boxes show messages 
entries about automount being unable to find .directory?
