Reverting to SP1.

I still have not solved the mystery of how to simply 'reply' to a
message posted here. That's why I'm unfortunately starting a new
thread......not even knowing if it will post.

If U have a reasonably large hard-disk (today's PC's are usually sized
160GB as standard and 300GB to be described as extra-large), then you
could re-size your current system partition on your hd and make a
smaller partition to install your original copy of XP again - but
[obviously] do not upgrade it to SP3. The second XP installation should
appear on the XP Boot/Startup menu as another operating system. Use
this second XP installation to install your older printer, and also,
when you need to print something off.

All good except that the machine came with XP installed, there just
ain't no installation disk, Tim.
But, I would seriously advise that, before going to the trouble of
creating your dual-boot system, that you try to find a friend who has XP
SP1 and see if the printer and it's drivers will install correctly.
But, if you can't find another XP SP1 installation, it's easier to
reverse the dual-boot procedure than to create it.

Don't need to, Tim...the scanner served well back in the SP1 days.
How troublesome would uninstalling SP3/SP2 be?

I'm trying that now. Just as you said. If it goes, the time is 9:17 P.M.....
