32 bit VM on 64 bit OS for driver compatibility

hey guys,
don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but here goes.
vista ultimate 32 is my main OS now, but i have the Win 7 64 bit on a separate drive. pretty much everything works except for my mustek scanner. this is a pretty much necessary piece of equipment for my work, being a tabloid sized scanner that is actually affordable. But it doesn't look like mustek has any intention of making 64 bit drivers for it.

someone suggested setting up a Virtual Machine and maybe running the scanner from there. I've done some poking around to research the whole idea of a VM, but i'm not sure if it would actually work with drivers or not.

would i be able to set up a VM on my win 7 64 bit and run 32 bit scanner drivers from there?

thanks for any info.
