I am trying to read images from Canon A300 on my RH8.0 box (kernel
2.4.20-20. -- no success so far.

Oct 26 18:08:17 localhost kernel: usb.c: USB device 8 (vend/prod
0x4a9/0x3076) is not claimed by any active driver.
Oct 26 18:08:21 localhost /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: ... no modules for USB
product 4a9/3076/1
Oct 26 18:10:12 localhost kernel: usb.c: USB disconnect on device
00:1f.2-2 address 8
