You can't load the drivers? The drivers don't extract and execute or if you point the add new hardware wizard to it it won't accept it or doesn't see them, or the drivers load but don't work?

In any of the cases first I'd try downloading the driver again, maybe the first one had some corrupt files from the download. If you still have the same problem try using the 98 drivers.

Good Luck

The drivers don't load. They extract and execute. The add new hardware wizard won't accept it or doesn't see them. It finds the INF file but then says the It can't find drivers. I have put them in a new folder and told the wizard where they were. The Printer shows up in the system but with a check mark so I tried loading them from there but the same thing. I would try to add them to the registry with the Registry Editor, but I'm not sure what goes where.
