HP PSC1110 Scanner issue

Hey all, I tried searching about a bit, but didn't find an answer to my spesific question:
I have an HP PSC1110 USB Scanner\Printer\Copier thing.
And it works perfectly with printing, cups worked nicely.
I'm running Slackware 10 on a 2.4.26 kernel.

But I wanna scan with it, so I thought I'd use xsane.
However, xsane tells me there is no scanner present.
Thereafter, I did a sane-find-scanner, and it found an USB Device scanner.
THen I run another command (I forgot right now what it's called, am at school, and can't remember the whole thing.)
And that program doesn't find one either.
I'm stumped, don't know where to look, or what to look for.

Also, just a quick question about blacbox, when I edit the relevant files to change the background, it doesn't load the image.
Anyone know how to this in Slackware?
bsetbg in .xinitrc doesn't work, and neither does doing that in ~/.fluxbox/init or ~/fluxbox/apps or ~/fluxbox/startup.
And yeah, I also tried the session.screen0.rootCommand: fbsetbg -f ~/pics/myfavpic.jpg

I know getting my PSC 1350 to scan, I had to muck around with different versions of the sane backends and frontends. The ones that worked were sane-backends-1.0.13 and sane-frontends-1.0.12. Note that the backend and frontend versions don't have to match. Oh and I also compiled from source tarballs. If you already haven't seen this site check it out. Essential in getting the PSC's to run.
