Thanks for the tip on xsane!  I just installed it, and the scans are 
looking much better.  Does the sane backend support the Nikon dust 
removal feature?  Also, I'm wondering if I have reasonable expectations 
for a slide scanner.  The scanned images don't look nearly as good as a 
projected image (not surprising), but they also don't look as good as 
some slides I've had printed up on photographic paper.  How do the 
dynamic ranges of scanned slides and printed slides compare?  Thanks,
