I need some very quick help.  I just got thrown into my lap a project of which I have no idea how to complete, so I need all of your help.

I have a paper map that has landuse polygons on it.  I have been asked to find the acreage for several of those polygons.  I do not have access to the original maps in digital form, thus I must digitize the pre-existing map, and then use the digital copy to find the acreage.  However, I am not sure how to do the digitizing, and not sure how to georeference it so that I can get the acreage.

Please Help !!!!   This project needs to be completed today.
