That would work fine with CentOS-6. But the OP is running EL5.

I got my LiDE 110/210 working that was connected to a Scientific Linux
5.7 box. The following procedure was from about 14 months ago, so some
part might not be current (but hopefully get you started).

- Rebuild xsane 0.998
- Rebuild sane-backends 1.0.19 (later version did not rebuild) -> not good
- Compile sane-backends 1.0.23 from git (tarball) [1] and
    manually copied genesys-related files from /usr/local/
- At this point scanner was found by root but not by non-root
- Edit /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules and change Mode from 0644 to 0666

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", \
        PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'K=%k; K=$${K#usbdev}; printf
bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i $${K%%%%.*} $${K#*.}'", \
        NAME="%c", MODE="0666"

Hope this helps,
