We have a Microtek 9800XL scanner that Jim would like to have available for use.

I've put some details at ScannerSoftware.

Not sure if photoshop has to be installed, hopefully not.

Scanner has been installed into Atlas, which is in T170b right next to the door. There was some trouble with callibrating the scanner with the included color sheet (which fortunately was among the plastic bag of documents and cds collected by Joshua). However, it seems that the scanner can only scan in black and white, it might be related to using the software off of the manufactuer's website, the next thing to try would be to use the software provided on the CD and see if that fixes the problem.

Uninstalled downloaded drivers and software, and then installed the drivers and software from the CD. Everything works fine, and scans work in full color.
