I found my original driver disk so I zipped up the drivers and posted them for all. This is the long awaited Windows XP driver, works fine and well, no need for the XP update driver.

"This driver works fine with XP. Thanks to Brian Walsh. I downloaded it to floppy. It was a bit tricky to install, I had to installed the original win.2000 drivers and software first (don't use auto run) then in device manager double click the scanner then re-install driver, windows will then search for driver and load it from floppy. done. Hope this helps."
