Not if there aren't any drivers for vista. It is unlikely that those drivers will get written if they don't exist yet, either use another OS with those devices, or get new models that have vista support.

In some cases the XP drivers will work even if you get a warning that they may not. But if they don't you'll have to contact the manufacturer for new drivers, or get some other devices.

The drivers are specific to each Operating System in most cases. Except for the simplest of drivers, you are going to have a major issue trying to get previous versions to become compatible with Vista.

This is one of the reasons why a lot of businesses still haven't migrated to Vista - there is still a lot of software and hardware out there which cannot be run due to lack of driver support.
