[nbos] Newbe Question

I am trying to take a hand drawn map and render it digitally. Are there
any shortcuts for this. I have scanned the image and cleaned it up in
Photoshop. I then used it as the background for the FM8 map. I tried
to take the freehand landmass tool and trace it, that worked ok except
my mousepad ran out of room before I had traced the object and while
moving the mouse it messed up the landmass. I was able to go in and fix
it by moving the anchor points, (man were there a lot of them) I ended
up removing most of the points. What I am hoping is that there will be
a tool that will take a white area from the background image and make it
into a polygon that is editable and able to be snapped to and such. Any
suggestions from experience would be welcome.
