By worse I mean that the 300 dpi scans under linux look like a fax;
very pixelated. They do not apear this way under NT. As to whether I'm
comparing the same setup, I'm as sure as I can be. I'm using XScanImage &
XSane, and it is set to 300 dpi. I open the file scanned under NT with
ACDSee and it says it is a 300 dpi image. I can not open the .prn files in
anything under linux except GIMP, and I have not figured out how to have it
show me the file information.

If there is a better way of insuring that sane is scanning at the
highest quality possible, please let me know!
