The only (I know) way to share a scanner from linux is connecting it to
another linux machine, then run gimp (or xscanimage) through ssh - you don't
want to do that.

I have such a setup here at university: a Win2k box having a printer connected
to it via parallel port, which is exported to the local network. In linux I
have managed to get it working with apsfilter: Just run apsfilterconfig and
follow the menus; choose the samba option for network printing.
