You may find that a graphic/photo/image editing application running
under FreeBSD will support the scanner itself, with the addition of a
plug-in, or external driver tool.    That is certainly the case with
that "other" popular Unix clone OS.   (I only use F'BSD from the command
line, but have scanner support in Gimp under Linux on other machines.)

Most of the low cost scanner hardware seems to use a chip-set from a
small selection of makers, so the chances are you may have support for
the scanner outside WINE.
