Thanks for your reply. When I plug in the scanner, it gets assigned to
ugen0 address 2. There are a couple files in the kernel that are used to
recognized the USB device as a scanner and then associate it with
uscanner0. Actually, I had to alter these files to recognize my scanner
(thanks to an email I came across regarding Epson Perfection 1640). I'm
almost positive that this part is working as expected. I don't believe
that FreeBSD users need to set a symlink for /dev/usbscanner, unless they
find it convenient to do so.
Of course, I could be wrong on any of the above :)
