An HP 9130 combo was installed in our office recently... a network
scanner/copier/fax/printer.  Working through the LAN, it can scan and cc
faxes to a CFS share, so Samba should work.  We don't have a Linux machine
in the office, though, so I can't attest to output compatibility.

Cheapest I am seeing it on the net is $870, though.  Whew.
