The resolution of a print is much lower than 2400 dpi, so the 4800 ppi scanner will only give you more pixels, not more information. Just to give you an idea of how much overkill you'd get: scanning a 4 x 6 inch print @ 4800 pixels per inch will give you a 4 x 4800 by 6 x 4800 pixels file. That's 19,200 x 28,800 pixels, or 553 Megapixels...
