the simplest and easies way to get all the 'non free' codecs including Real
Player and a whole bunch of other stuf is with Automatix. This is a GUI
which allows you to download and install a whole bunch of stuff. Get it at
http://www.getautomatix.com/wiki/index.php?title=Installation and select the
version for Dapper.
You can also do a lot of this via the Synaptic Package manager but you will
need to enable all the non official repositories.
As far as a driver for your scanner is concerned,
have you checked the Epson web site?
have you tries Xsane image scanner to see if it picks up the scanner?
Have a look here
