Writing a driver for scanners

The other day I came across a wrapper for wireless lan drivers that uses 
the XP driver and loads it into Linux.  Driver interfaces in Windows are 
fairly standard for a certain type of device.  I suggest you look on the 
web for sites that list drivers and see if something like this is 
available.  If it is not then add to the wifi wrapper so that it handles 
the XP or 2000 driver that came with your scanner.  The resulting code 
would be very valuable to both Wine and Linux especially if it allowed 
the use of an XP driver for the thousands of special devices that only 
have XP drivers.
Start by looking at www.linuxdrivers.org.
