When I ran the scanner under 98SE it was accessible via Start, Programs. This then gave a wizard for scanning to whatever application you wanted i.e. a word processor or a graphics application, just a straight copy (like a zerox), sending to e mail or saving to disc.
The printer had a wizard that was accessed as above with the ability to troubleshoot problems etc. and print off pictures without having to open another program. This is now all ?lost? due to the driver setup needed for XP.
They are both still usable but more involved access wise.
