installing hp scanjet2200c scanner

What software can I download from the internet to install an hp scanjet 2200c scanner in a KDE 3.0.0 SuSE environment? I have already downloaded Kooka-.37-40 i386 rpm, but this is dependent on other programs that I don't have. Am I on the right track? Please help a newbie!
Thanks, swved.

that model's driver is still under development, more info can be found here:

normally you would need sane (Scanner Access Now Easy) + the 'backend' (driver) for the scanner, plus a 'frontend' (kooka, xsane, xscanimage,etc.)

Just in case someone is looking for info about this scanner, now it does work very well under linux (I already tried it)

PS I think it is quite straightforward, but post, in case someone has questions about this; I'll try my best...
