chooser probs?

My chooser doesn't allow me to choose a port. Every time I try to enable a printer driver it tells me I must be connected to AppleTalk to use the driver. I have never used AppleTalk. This all happened when I upgraded to System 7.5.5. Nothing seems to work. Reinstalling 7.5, then 7.1... The bottom line is that I can't print. The printer is not recognized nor is the port. I can't seem to find any reason for the chooser not even a) giving me a port selection, or b) not even recognizing my printer description, or c) telling me I need AppleTalk to use my printer (Okidata 410 postscript printer) when I've never had it. What can I do?

Just turn on AppleTalk. You can turn it on right there in the choser. Plug the printer into the printer port. You might also want to go into the Network control panel to make sure you are set to the built-in appletalk. If this does not work you should reinstall the printer extensions. You should also check with the macufacturer to see if they have a newer version of the printer extension.
