I scan 35mm frames at 2820dpi / 16-bit, which gives ~60MB files.  This
generally gives no problems on my Win98 machine with 256MB.

*However*, using the ICE / ROC / GEM features of the scanner (Minolta Scan
Elite II) does seem to require more memory, as there is a fair bit of disk
thrashing going on towards the end of the process.  This occurs after the
scan head has stopped moving, but before the file is written.
