If you are trying to hook up an HP Scanner to a Linux box you may be 
encountering a bug in a particular kernel that did not allow HP Scanner 
recognition. I use MandrivaLinux 2007 and you may find a discussion on 
their forum. I had a problem with my HP scanner which was eventually 
resolved through a kernel update. You may find the discussion here:


Maybe this will help you out in connecting it to your Linux box instead 
of through WINE.

You may also want to investigate a piece of software called "Vuescan" 
(http://www.hamrick.com) which I use. It is commercial, but the author 
is extremely helpful and Vuescan is an excellent piece of Linux software.
