I'm a newbie, this is the newbie forum so this IS a newbie question (as opposed to hardware/software)
I've looked at the mandrake sight.
I've found the site that tells me about supported usb scanners
I've had a dig around the "sane" site
It appears that most of the scanner information that I can find is comparatively out of date, i.e. it doesn't seem that the scanners that are currently available will run under linux.
So, where do I need to check or what do I need to know before I part with hard earned cash for a scanner?
I don't really want to have to buy one that will only work with window$, and as most of the available info refers to superceded models
Are there any particular makes of scanner that have good support and therefore are likely to work, even with the newer unlisted models ?
any suggestions much appreciated
p.s. what is the name of the html editor/web design tool that is most suitable to use under linux (a sort of "frontpage" type thing)??
