Most scanners are supported in Linux via the SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend.

Find a scanner you like then throw it into Google and see if its supported :-)

If you want a USB scanner, Epson is the recommended brand. See the USB scanner list (http://www.buzzard.org.uk/jonathon/scanners-usb.html) or the main SANE site (http://www.sane-project.org/).
