I wish I could recommend a Linux solution, but the ScanSnap line is
really amazing. My dad bought one a few years ago. You feed it up to
50 pages at a time, it takes only a few seconds per page, and the
bundled Windows software performs good OCR automatically. It makes a
flatbed scanner look really silly.
Who knows, maybe the software works in Wine. :-)
