I set up a Epson Perfection 1260 on my home server a few months ago.  I got 
some info from the list here and some from google searches.  I don't 
remember off hand how this was accomplished and haven't tested it much 
except for the first night, basically just set it up to see if it was 
possible.  I did however run across posts stating to be careful as the wrong 
settings have been known to damage certain scanners.  I will see if I can 
get time tomorrow night and have a look at some old notes and see what made 
this work unless someone is able to help you out in the meantime.  I know 
there was some lts.conf module settings and I used XSane as the scanning 
program.  But not sure what else, but rest assured it is possible.
