    No, there is a seperate project called "Xsane" that makes a front end for
    sane that is much more sophisticated than xscanimage. And someone
    maintained a Win32 port, as the original project is based on Gtk/Gnome.

    I have no idea. I just set it up so some Win32 people could use the
    scanner, beyond that I never use Windows. You can scan and save to a
    file, and insert the file into the document which is enough
    interoperation for me (Win 9x is a multi-tasking OS after all, at least
    on a good day). I have looked for documentation on how to configure the
    "Scan" menu item in Staroffice but have never found anything.
