Linux 2.4.20, the 1660 is already known.

Yes. Basically, the number of scanners is unlimited. I've succeeded in
scanning from 3 USB and 3 SCSI scanners at the same time :-)

Usually, put the "usb vendor product" lines for your scanners in the
config files. Some backends detect all supported scanners automatically.
