Ouch! I don't think that I, for one, realized that Phil's G4 wouldn't use a 
standard SCISI card. Aparently, Acer didn't, either.

Phil, if I can apologize, I certainly do. Fortunately (I hope), you can return 
the Acer and replace it with a USB scanner. 

G**d**n*d electronics! Get your sabots to the ready, you Fellow Ludites!

Best regards, and good luck--LRA
