I have a Scantastic scanner which uses the "TWAIN compliant"
drivers. This scanner doesn't have a SCSI interface but an ISA interface
card. Does the Sane drivers/software detect ISA or only SCSI?
With the growing popularity of the "cheaper" scanners (199.99 and
less) which use these "TWAIN compliant" drivers i would think that
something would be designed to use them in the Linux community.
