A little help with calibration

First time on this forum…

I am so happy they have a site just dedicated to this topic.

My software and hardware…

Scanner Umax Powerlook 2100XL
Apple 17" Monitor

Photoshop cs3
Monaco ezColor
Silverfast Ai photoshop plug-in

I am having a terrible time calibrating my stuff. The instructions via ezColor seem simple enough but when the image is scanned the color is way off. I think I have silverfast Ai set up wrong but I am not sure where to begin.

Maybe someone can point me to a tutorial using Monaco ezColor with silverfast ai…

Thanks in advance
