Sane (Scanner Access Now Easy) is what you need. It comes with SuSE. You
will need to find a scanner (USB, Firewire, SCSI, ...) that is supported by
Sane. SuSE offers drivers for a great number of units. Personally I use an
Epson 2450 Photo and it has been well supported for the past few years. USB
2.0 is nice for its speed - I wouldn't go slower than that.
My recommendation is to go into Yast2 -> Hardware -> Scanners and pretend to
manually add a scanner. You can then read through the list of supported
scanners. Some models have more than one driver. This should let you verify
that a unit you like is supported.
