being an absolute newbie I managed to install Mandrake Linux 9.1 today,
although I had sworn beforehand never to try it again (two tries with Suse
Linux 6 and 7 resulted in destruction of all data on my machine)...
I was surprised how well it went, and that the setup routine recognized
virtually all the hardware I built into my machine.
BUT: it recognizes my HP Scanjet 5470C scanner, and refuses to work with it
(says: scanner not supported by this version of mandrake linux).
Any ideas how I can get it to work? It would be the perfect finale for my
first hands-on experience with linux, having started installation about one
hour ago and now I'm connected to the net and asking stupid questions...
