Hi -- I just happened to notice your question on the Ubuntu-users
list, but you will probably find more specific help in Ubuntu Forums
web site, specifically the section for PowerPC users:

The SCSI scanner could either be the appropriate SCSI module didn't
get loaded, or it could be an issue with configuring SANE. Most of the
problems I have had with SANE have turned out to be permissions
issues, and once those are resolved it works very reliably.

Does sudo sane-find-scanner see it? If it shows up when using sudo,
but not when you run sane-find-scanner as a regular user, then it's a
permissions issue.

If you haven't already, I suggest you look in the Ubuntu Forums for
the latest on how to get suspend working.

Good luck!
