    This looks to be a corresponding problem I have experienced. My Suse 9.1
    Pro/Yast2 don't find my Epson Perfection 1640 SCSI scanner.
    (Meantime I scan from my Sun Java Desktop System SJDS R2, pre-based on
    Suse 8.1, and which have no problem to find the scanner!)

    In fact Suse 9.1/Yast2 detects only 1 of my 3 SCSI devices connected to
    the controller. I think therefore this is rather a Suse 9.1 SCSI
    problem, as I have posted on another link on this forum (though without
    any response so far):

    I've also requested this problem to Suse Installation support, and I am
    waiting with interest on their reply and solution .......
