Doubt - Can a scanner be faster on Windows 98 than on Linux?

I have been struggling to get my old UMax T-630 to work with sane
for almost six months. I decided
to start from scratch again just to see if I can find the missing
point. As usual there is a very simple
question that is getting in the way:
Why my scanner works fine and fast with Adobe Photoshop
3.05-VistaScan 2.30 on Windows 98? When
I switch to caldera 2.3-sane-1.0.1 is a completely different story: i)
the scanner scans with tiny steps
(so tiny that I can go for lunch and the thingy is still going) and ii)
crashes with error messages at the
end of the whole scanning process (that is, no image). What is going on?

Thanks for your help.
