after much frustration, I was finally able to get the scanner to work. steps to follow:
FIRST:
download the 'windows XP tool' from the US site:
http://www.mustek.com.tw/Download/html/english-xp.html

SECOND:
you need the windows 2000 driver that comes in SIX downloads, not the ziped file. I never could get the english site to 'respond', so I went to the Europe site:
http://www.mustek-driver.de/1200iiiep.html

Download all 6

THIRD:
UNinstall any previous versions of the driver you have tried to load. If you don't do this, the scanner will do some weird things and you will get "scanner not ready" messages.

FOURTH:
run/double click the XP tool file, select the British flag (2nd option) for english and when the window comes up to specify the driver, then select the first file from the six downloads.

FIFTH:
when it completes, allow the PC to reboot.

SIXTH:
the cover sensor does not appear to be part of the 2000 driver installation. Just launch any image application (ie, Microsoft Photo Editor, Photo Studio, etc), from the [file] menu, select [scanner source] or [acquire] (most image softwares have one of these)- it should list Mustek as an available source.

From the [file] menu select [scan] or [acquire] or other similar wording for the application.

After doing the above, I now have my scanner back!
