If you have a good expensive model of Brother MFC the printer speaks PostScript and doesn't need any driver. Check if the sane-backends support
scanning. I would be very surprised that they do. If they do let us know and
we will try to help you. Getting all-in-one is rather tricky because of the way
the device drivers has to get attached (it also doesn't help that devices are
designed with Linux in mind which is completely different OS).

Brother has proprietary Linux drivers for printers and scanners. If your MFC is
of importance to you the best thing would be to use Ubuntu or something like that.
