As already pointed out, sane is in the ports. It's the preferred tool
for dealing with scanners. See URL: http://www.mostang.com/sane/ 
for a list of supported devices.

 Is there any possibilty to share the scanner in an Network, pretty
 much like a printer?

Sane will do that for you.

 what do I have to consider when buying a flat bed scanner for a
 FreeBSD-CURRENT box?

I have to piggyback on his question:

Is there any tutorial out there for how to do a USB scan - 
how to scan a page on a USB scanner into Gimp or something?

I've got one here I want to try, but don't know how to start.
