"What do you do when you install Ubuntu and you find out your scanner doesn't work? Do you reinstall Windows or do you buy another scanner?"

Let's just rephrase that. What do you do when you upgrade Windows and your scanner no longer works?

Oh wait, if the scanner doesn't work on 2K3 or XP/64, it's the manufacturer's fault.
