I am scanning from a Nikon LS30, saving 64bit RGBI files using
Vuescan.  This gives compressed TIFF files of around 33MB each.  128MB
memory is fine for this on a P500 laptop.  Takes 2 minutes per frame.  I
was previously using a P200 with 64MB.  This took just the same time to
scan, but was much slower at any post scanning manipulation.

I second the idea of scanning using a separate machine.  Even though W2K
task manager shows that there is about 50% CPU load scanning using Vuescan
(was 100% on a P200), trying to run anything alongside Vuescan is virtually
impossible for me.  Perhaps that would be very different with more memory.
