    Hi. ScanJet "6100" and "6100C" are equivalent, so you shouldn't have a
    problem using SANE with it. In general with HP peripherals that have
    multi-digit model numbers like this, two devices with the same number but
    different letter suffixes (no suffix, C, Cse, Cxi, etc.) have few or no
    differences, and often the only difference is in the software bundle, which
    doesn't affect you anyway if you don't use Windows.

    On the other hand, older ScanJets and LaserJets with single-digit numbers
    (for example, ScanJet 4c and 4p) are different, and IIRC such ScanJets with
    an "s" or "si" prefix aren't currently supported outside of Windows.
