Anybody had any experience on using OCR on Linux??

I'm running FC3.  Can boot a Debian system if needed.

Found a 'gocr' RPM and downloaded/compilied 'ocrad'. Both are GNU.
Results not stellar on my test images.

Found a FC2 reference to 'kooka' - RPM doesn't seem to be in FC3.
Didn't try to download/complie.
