I have a multifunction scanner/printer/copier which I am moving to Windows Server 2003 but I cannot find a specific scanner driver for Win2K3. There are drivers for every other platform and I'm wondering what others have done in this situation. Has anyone hacked a scanner driver together from the other platforms or is there a fantastic generic TWAIN driver?

The model of the device is SCX4100 which is a Samsung.

Versions of scanner drivers

The times I've had to install a driver on Server2003, I just tried the Server2000 driver. Most times it works out for the majority (or all) of the functionality.

I have also had success stealing drivers from windows 2000 for various hardware. – Jack B Nimble May 21 '09 at 19:34
I'll vote this as the answer because it will probably work for most people, but does not work for my scanner. I'll have to upgrade to Win 2008. – Ryan ONeill May 22 '09 at 16:32
