Scanner not working on Ubuntu 8.10 Samsung SCX-4521F

I'm trying to add my printer/scanner Samsung SCX-4521F to my machine running Ubuntu 8.10.  I was successful setting up the printer.  It  works perfectly.  The only problem is that Sane does not find the scanner.  I looked at the sane-project website and did not find my device under supported devices.  I was wondering if there was a way around that.  Is there another way to add the scanner to my system?  Thanks.
