Cut the amount of samples down. x16 sampling will take along time., x8 will 
pretty much twice as fast.

I could never get good results from Silverscan. Right now I am using 
Nikonscan and Vuescan.

I have been getting very good results with Nikonscan and Tri-X. The trick is 
to set the film
type to color negative and the result to B/W 16bit. You'll see a large jump 
in dynamic range.

Take a look at my webpage for examples.
