There is scanner support in Linux with a couple of Debian packages, but
I am not sure it is as accurate as the stuff for Windows yet. Scanners
are supported with a package called "sane" (scanners are now easy) that
gives you a command line application called "scanimage". Then the OCR
part is done with a package called "gocr" (you install both gocr and
gocr-doc) and that too is a command line program. So, they work, but I
am not sure how well.

That 2nd hd would be a slave, so how do I tell the debian to install itself onto that hd and to boot up from it? Is this the best solution? I could get rid of everything that is on the current hd and install Linux only, but in that case, will linux support scanner on which I depend so much?
