Depending on the scanner, two things are possible:
a) finally /dev/uscanner0 appears, which means that SANE has
a 90%+ chance to get the scanner working
b) only /dev/ugenX.Y (generic USB device) appears, but SANE can
often work with that, too
At least a new USB device should be recognized by the system.
With the usbconfig utility, vendor and device ID can be obtained
for further investigations about hardware support.
Scanner interaction tools are provided with xsane, xscanimage,
a GIMP plugin, or a LibreOffice function.
It's worth checking which native solutions are possible before
trying more complex things like WINE or even a full "Windows"
