Looking to go paperless but afraid to shred everything.

I'm looking to digitise all of my documents or as many as possible, but am slightly weary about shredding everything what sorts of documents should i keep original paper copies of and which should I digitise?
I ask because I don't want to end up in a sticky legal situation where I would require the original paper copy.

I believe that it should be fully legal to use a digital copy of a once physical document but I could be wrong I need some advice on this because I really want to buy a scansnap scanner from fujitsu
but just aren't sure, yet.
Also on a side note these scanners convert the scans directly into pdf's is there a good search tool to help in finding text in documents for linux, or am i going to have to settle for my winblows box?
