agfa snapscan 1236s not detected

i would like to get my agfa snapscan 1236s working. i tried to follow the instructions on the sane-project home page (sorry i can't post urls) for scsi scanners but i'm not able to detect it. i powered down my computer, powered on the scanner, powered on the computer. but still:
renna@delirium renna $ cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: Y-E DATA Model: USB-FDU          Rev: 4.01
  Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
renna@delirium renna $
this is my external floppy drive connected via usb, but i can't see my scanner.
root@delirium renna # sane-find-scanner

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

  # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a driver for your USB host controller and have installed a
  # kernel scanner module.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
  # can't be detected by this program.
root@delirium renna #
i still haven't found any useful information. maybe the problem is in my scsi configuration? in my kernel? i really don't know where to start from.

i run gentoo
renna@delirium renna $ uname -a
Linux 2.6.3 #4 SMP Wed Aug 25 11:04:30 CEST 2004 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
