I find black and white harder to do well than color in scanners. I'm not
sure why. Maybe I've just gotten good at printing, so I expect my pictures
to look like they were printed. Different medium, so I guess it should look
different. But it's frustrating.

I'm with you there. Just ordered Photoshop 5.0, I hear it's got some great
new features.
