Hi,Dick -
        I always scan B&W line art in grayscale at 600 dpi, then reduce the
file size in Photoshop to 300 dpi. There's usually some cleanup to do,
using levels, adjusting brightness & contrast; maybe a bit of erasing to
get rid of the big specks, if any. depending on the final use, I'll save
as grayscale or convert to line art. This usually works pretty well.
        Sometimes line art scanned as line art loses some detail. Scanning as
grayscale helps to keep the details - depends on the original subject.

Gail
