You will need the USB module (or compiled into the kernel) and also the
usbscanner and some other bits. You will need to read this page
http://snapscan.sourceforge.net/ you will need to create the device node
/dev/usbscanner and then install sane and xsane.
Good luck though as I had problems getting it working and in the end took
the Agfa back to the store and got an Epson scanner. I have heard other
people have had problems but stick with it as it should work.
