This is not a recommendation as I don't use it, but VueScan at 
<> is one possibility.  It apparantly does a 
better job at using a scanners capabilities than the software that 
comes with the scanner.  Its available for Win, Mac and Linux!

Of course, there is also SANE (Scanning Access Now Easy) at 
<> which is the 'default' scanner 
interface software for Linux (not that it is not scanning software, 
but an API - the web site has all the details). would be another source to look for scanner software.

And if you are new to scanning, then I suggest you also look at 
<> for some wonderful information on the how, 
when, wheres and whats of scanning.  (It also has some links to other 
software there as well and lots of other scanning sites).
