I cannot tell you about F7T1 but to make it work under FC6 you
do not need iscan.  It actually works much nicer with xsane.  The
trick is that you need to place a firmware file esfw54.bin
in /etc/sane.d/firmware/ directory and possibly also a line

firmware /etc/sane.d/firmware/esfw52.bin

in /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf

I do not have that scanner but my friend does. :-)

'esfw52.bin' can be found somewhere via Google.  I would imagine
that it came too with that iscan you were using.  OpenSUSE has
also iscan-firmware rpm with firmware blobs for various Epson
scanners.  No problems to unpack that.

If you will give it firmware than I would expect that all will work.
