can a Virtual machine help me!

I have Windows XP 64bit, and have experienced problems with a scanner driver which is not compatible with 64 bit systems. If I install Microsoft Virtual PC, and install a 32bit version of XP onto the virtual HD, will I be able to use my scanner using the Virtual PC?

"Try VirtualBox instead. From what I remember, support for USB wasn't that great in VirtualPC. And VirtualBox seems better, in my opinion.

The scanner will work in the VM, as long as the OS is 32 bit and you have drivers for it."
