There are none and I am sorry but there probably never will be, See this is the major problem with Win 7 anything over a year old generally just isn't supported.
Here is how to Install them so they work.
Download your XP driver you wish to install. If it's in a zip/rar file then extract it to your desktop.
You should have a simple .exe file sitting on your desktop to install the drivers, as normal for XP.
Right click the .exe file and select "Properties".
Then select the tab called "Compatibility"
Now check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Make sure "Windows XP Service Pack 2" is highlighted.
Now apply the settings and run the installer.
This should work for most drivers, but not all
Install and run as Administrator.
CANON LBP2900B DriversHere is the driver for Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista/Server 2008/Windows 7 Installation Procedure when Connecting USB Cable Do not connect the USB cable until after you have loaded the downloaded files. After all files have been loaded connect the USB cable to the back of the printer.
it could be possible that you are running on a different platform, say Vista, and you are downloading on XP vice versa, ensure you have the correct version of the driver you wish to install, unless you correctly choose the right OS, you will never make this work. sometime it is confusing really...
hope this helps
