this is not easy. You will get no documentation for the S20 from HP. And
it seems that it is not compatible to some other scanner. You only could
reverse engineer the Windows driver or have a look at the USB protocols
generated by some USB spy software. And you have to build a backend from
scratch (or use the ppm-backend as example). And your scanner may crash
during your tests.
But it could be fun. I suppose other backends have been written this way
