Looks like the answer is Yes. Here is a link to the driver that works.

and the backend description -->http://www.sane-project.org/man/sane-hp5400.5.html

I have a HP Scanjet G4010 and there is no backend, yet. So I installex Sun's Virtual Box version 3.08, installed XP as a guest system and now scan using my G4010 on XP. I only use XP for the scanner, beats having to keep a real XP system around for the scanner...
