When I install a scanner card, what do I do when the system prompts me for the file scmapper.sys?

A. When you try to install a scanner, Windows 2000 might prompt you for the file scmapper.sys. If you receive this prompt, open a text editor and create a file with absolutely nothing in it. Save the file as scsimap.sys (note the difference in name from what Win2K prompted for) in %systemroot%\system32.
