Best way of converting/scanning photo slides to digital images

Happy holidays crew,

A friend of mine has found stacks of old photo slides over the xmas period and wants to convert them all to digital images. I've seen that '35mm film and slides' scanners are available on ebay for £40-50, though all seem to be from the US.

What's the best method of taking care of this, besides sending them to someone who already owns hardware for doing it?

Thanks for the advice!

Thanks, just taken a look on Maplin myself and have seen they do B-grade for £39.99 delivered: http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=224226&C=Froogle&U=224226&T=Module

Anyone offer any comments on the item in that link? Although it will be mostly slides that are getting scanned, the support for negatives would be useful too.
