[CentOS] Issue with HP Officejet 6500 on CentOS 5.5

I just picked one of these up to replace my 4315, which broke (I think
the feeder roller gear broke from an overstuffed feeder), but it's
giving me problems.

I had no trouble configuring it to print, but it doesn't appear in
lsusb and xsane can't find it, so I can't scan with it, which is the
main reason I bought it in the first place.

I've tried restarting the autofs service (automounter), rebooting, and
switching the USB cables with my old HP Scanjet 3300C, but the 3300
shows up on either cable and the 6500 doesn't appear at all.

I checked in Google and saw other issues with the 6500, but this
wasn't one of them.

Any suggestions?

I suppose I could get a switch and hook it up via Ethernet, but that
really isn't a good solution, and it doesn't explain the problem.
