Here's a summary to my question :

> We are looking to connect a flatbed scanner (preferably colour, A3, 600dpi;
> even more preferably something like a HP ScanJet 4c..) to Solaris 2.4.
> The idea is to use it with PhotoShop 3.0.

ScanMaker II scanners (use with HP scanners not confirmed). contact for more details.

4. reports another driver :
"We've had a number of people hook up this SCSI scanner with our generic
SCSA driver. We haven't taken the changes back, so there will be some
work involved to get it going. If you're interested please let me know."

5. I didn't hear of any public domain drivers.
