Thanks. I'm sure that I did not have that set up and will try it tonight.
However, I've gone back to Server 1 by now for several reasons. With Server
2, I also had no sound, the PS/2 mouse didn't work, and I didn't like the
management interface as well. So it may still be that Server 1 won't work
with the USB scanner. The Server manual admits that it may have problems
Getting Server 1.0.6 to run with the 2.6.26 kernel was no simple matter
either, but I did succeed with patches I found online.
