Vista comes with drivers for both of those you mentioned.

As Andrew stated, there are native drivers in Vista for both printers but
both printers are, AFAIK, only parallel port printers. You will definitely
need parallel port capability on your computer to use these printers. Some
computers, even with the port, are shipped with it turned off in the bios.

I believe the Panasonic KX-2123 is supported on Vista 32 and 64 bit with
"in-box" drivers. I am not sure about the Epson FX-85 itself. I believe
there is no printer-specific driver but that it is supported by the generic
Epson FX 80 family driver.

For a fully supported Epson-

There are USB-to-parallel adapters. I'd think with basic, non-PnP DM
printers and stock MS drivers, they should work fine.
