the standard kernel has support for your scsi card so all you need to do again is: go to yast -> admin -> install new hardware -> scanner
but be careful before exiting the mask because you NEED to asign the correct LUN otherwise it could happen to 'knock out' your hard drive.

kde has the option of allowing every user to mount/unmount drives, if it does not work, edit /etc/fstab and change the line to something like

if you install the rpm's using YAST they should show up in the menu of kde, theydo not, or only rarely in fvwm2 or gnome, only if they have been entered to the configuration by default already, else it is your job to do so.

ok, hope this helps a bit
