As for scanning, this is one of the many things that everyone but RedHat
seems to be able to do correctly.  They seem to be unable to add three
words to the spec file.  Try adding libsane-hpaio and see if that fixes

Otherwise, in both cases, I'd recommend my own page on installing it
from source.   (NOT the install wizard they have, which is a complete
pain for several reasons.)

Giles: Alright. I'll just jump into my time machine, go back to 
the 12th century and ask the vampires to postpone their ancient 
prophecy for a few days while you take in dinner and a show. 
Buffy: Okay, at this point you're abusing sarcasm.
