Scanner Driver Problem

    I have an old CanoScan FB 6200 scanner and I want to install the driver on
    my Window XP Pro operating system. I know it works because I have done it
    before with the same scanner and operating system.

    Here's the rub: when I did it before, the operating system I installed it on
    used drive C: as the local disk - the OS I am trying to install it on now
    uses drive E: as the local disk (currently.drive C: is being used by my zip
    drive).

    I d/loaded the drivers from Canon and when I tried to install them (there
    are 2 versions), the installation programs wanted to install it on drive C:
    and would not let me change the drive to E: no matter what I tried.

    Is there a way to get this driver to install on drive E: instead of drive C:
    ?

    Thanks in advance for any help or pointers you may be able to give me to
    resolve this problem!

    Thanks for reading this post, but after I wrote this a work-around occured
    to me and it did the trick. The scanner is now working properly and I am
    ready to call it a night!
