Since I'm having the same problem, I'll reply here.
I have a Pentium 200 with 96mb RAM and the scanner is on its own Adaptec
1540 controller. The buffer is 128K and my scanning is very slow and does
the backtracking. Turning backtrack has no substantial speedup and the
colors are completely screwed up.
Grayscale is great, and fast. Color under Windows is fast too. Of
course, now I cannot use it under Windows because the TWAIN driver
won't support my Adaptec.
