Mandrake 10.0 to work with Visioneer 8100 scanner?

I know that Mandrake 10 doesn't come with the appropriate drivers and Visioneer doesn't seem to have them available...but has anyone found a way to still use the scanner under Linux?

I didn't look at every hit that a web search turned up, but all that I did look at basically were asking the same question as you. So it doesn't look likely.

Interestingly there were quite a few hits on folks claiming to be having problems with this scanner on XP.

Fun Jim, about the XP bit:-)
The people to ask is probably the sane project (http://www.sane-project.org/)... Hm, am I remembering wrong or isn't Kerl Heinz (khkremer) an active member there?

Yes I am :-) I must have missed this question. This scanner is marked as "unsupported" on the "Supported Devices" page:
