A few years ago I spent days trying to get ANY scanner to work via SANE,
and never did succeed. SANE has probably improved, but it was probably
my worst experience with Linux. (Mandrake)

Hello all,

We need suggestions on a high speed double sided wikked fast blah blah
blah scanner that will play nice with Linux - specifically Debian - and
SANE drivers. The only ones we can find are flatbeds.

While I have your attention - I am looking for opinions on Bell and
Howell scanners. Good?, Bad?, Indifferent?
