On Linux:  install the SANE and XSane packages, including the XSane GIMP
Plugin.  Setting up SANE is a little confusing for newbies, but it just
takes a "Doh!" moment to realize it isn't that hard.

On Windows:  I think you need to configure your scanner with TWAIN,
whatever that is.

On Mac:  I have no idea.

GIMP does not have built in scanner support.  It utilizes whatever
scanner support is available from your operating system.
