Eee PC Xandros Linux compatible scanner

I am configuring an EeePC that comes preloaded with Xandros Linux. Has anyone found a compatible flatbed scanner? The scanner resolution only needs to support black and white text documents. I am considering a low end Epson Perfection V200 flatbed scanner since it appears Epson supports other versions of Linux such as Debian and the Debian Linux driver just might work.

In general, if a device has a Linux driver available, it will work with any version of Linux. Epson and HP both have good Linux support. Avoid multi-function devices.
