I'm using an older scsi scanner myself under linux and I totally :heart: 
it.  Really high speed heavy duty machine I picked up for $75 on ebay.  
Sane works with it seamlessly.

The little bit I've done with scanning under linux though says that 
basically sane either sees it or you're cooked.  Sane doesn't list Vidar 
as a scanner type at all:
http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html

You might try reading the sane-project.org site to see if you can get 
some love over there, see if there's a compatible machine or if it's an 
easy fix for them to add support.  If not, I think you're out of luck, 
garbage time for the scanner.
