Go to the scanner home site and see if it has any useful information.  
If so (or even if not) then go to the SANE site and see what they have 
to say about your scanner.  I have a wonderful scanner that has a 
proprietary coding which they absolutely refuse to release to 
developers but also refuse to write Unix/Linux drivers for.  So far, it 
has not been hacked so I had to give it to my wife, who runs Win98.

Sometimes the best thing to do is read the "supported" list before 
buying (and even that doesn't always work -- I had to download three 
different programs to patch together to get my old Epson 777 to work 
and only one new one to get the Epson C80 to work - but it works
