Ok. Please tell us more about your system:
- Which SCSI card is used for your scanner?
- Is the SCSI driver for this card loaded?
- Is your SCSI cdrom connected to the same SCSI card or a different one?
Your problem is not related to xsane (that's "just" the graphical
application, the scanner access is done in the SANE backends).
It's a problem of your kernel or hardware. First make sure that your
scanner is detected in /proc/scsi/scsi, then you can go on with
sane-find-scanner, scanimage and xsane.

Ignore net.conf. At least if you don't want to use SANE over the
network, you don't need it.
