I have a Brother MFC-5200C multifunctional unit that I like pretty well. It has a USB port, and works (supposedly) with Macs. I've downloaded and installed the drivers on my beige G3 running OS X. What software do I use to scan things now? The only thing I've ever used to scan something at home was ColorIt 3.0 on my 5200 with my 12 year old Microtek scanner. The G3 has a Belkin USB 2-port card in a PCI slot. I tried printing to it, and it wouldn't print. My Epson 880 works fine on the same card, so it's not the card's problem.
I run 10.2.8 with 128 MB RAM.
