According to what your RH7.3 set up the graphics card, you should have 
appropriate color capabilities.  You might want to check your graphics 
settings.  You should either run 16bit or 24bit, if you are not going 
to play any games on the machine.  I have never had the need to run 
more than 16bit on anything as it provides all the colors and speed 
with that.

Don't remember what kernel RH7.3 came with, I believe it was 2.4.18?  If 
earlier than that, you might want to consider moving up a bit as the 
later kernels better supported and fixed USB somewhat.  Next thing you 
should check are the USB, scanner modules to be sure they are loading.  
My Epson Photo 1650 scanner was as difficult as just plugging it into 
the computer.  SuSE took over from there and it was ready to use.  I 
also downloaded the IScan program from Epson, which works very well.  
Check the version of sane you are using to be certain it supports your 
newer scanner as well.  Using the 1250 model should also work as there 
are only slight differences between it and the 1260.

Good luck on your quest!
