SANE and Scanning


I have a (crappy) LG scanworks 36a scanner, and i have to scan 100+ photos for my father, but since im only running Linux, i have to setup my scanner first.
I looked at SANE and i didnt find my scanner among the supported scanners, which is hard to beleive since it is a very common scanner as far as i know.
So can someone tell me if it's worth trying SANE, and if so, can someone point me to a good tutorial because i didnt find any good ones for seting up a scanner from zero, i dont even know if the scanner is detected!!
Thanks you very much

Hmmm, is it USB, PP, or SCSI?

It's PP, (big ass 25? pin connector, connects to the same slot as a Parallel port printer)
When i run xsane it reports no devices found, so it's not even detected... what section of the kernel contains scanner (image acquisition) drivers?
Thanks for the reply.
