I will second the recommendation for VueScan. And I will also recommend
the Canon LiDE scanner. I have an LiDE 20 that I got for a song off of
Bill and it just rocks. LED based so no bulb to go out. About my only
complaint is that it's not legal-sized but that isn't a big thing for me.
Help! I'm trapped in a maze of evil spammers and bad IRC quotes!
