I took a look at Agfa's web site. The scanner uses a different windows driver 
than the Snapscan series, so I guess your chances for getting it to work with 
the snapscan backend are, well, minimal. It may still be worth to try: get 
the latest snapscan backend from sourceforge.net/projects/snapscan and 
install over sane-1.0.5 sources. You'll have to add the SCSI ID string of 
your scanner in snapscan.h, around line 110. For a first try you can map your 
scanner to a PRISA1240 or SNAPSCANE50.

Your other problem may be Solaris: I don't know of anybody using the snapscan 
backend on Solaris yet...
