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.
