I think i may sound stupid, but where can i find that 5.0 faq ?

The FreeBSD homepage only links to a 4.x faq, and a google search
for "faq 5.0 freebsd" obviously yields way too many results ;-)

Well, actually the ScanJet 4100C is listed to be supported by uscanner(4).
There also exists a SANE backend for it, so i expected to get it to work
with kde and kooka and give my father a nice-to-use frontend.

Now, when there is a FreeBSD driver for this specific device, someone
MUST have been able to get it to work in the past, right ?

I'll post this answer to freebsd-questions, but i'll only BCC you because 
i think you might have wanted to protect your email address from spammers.
