HP Laserjet 6L WinNT4 driver

We tried to use the HP WinNT4 driver for the Laserjet 6L. Now, printing works, but slow.
Under Win95 i changed settings to HPGL to make it faster :-)
How can I do this using this NT driver?

There is "naughty" way around this.

Use a driver from a previous HP model, e.g. HP Laser Jet III.  The PCL  (printer control language) supported by newer models is a superset of that on the old.

Be aware you may loose a couple of the flashier features on the 6L, but for basic wordprocessing etc. you should be okay (i.e. you might not want to try this is your a graphic design professional - but then again you'd probably not be using an HP Laser Jet anyway)

Why don't you download the newer driver from HP's web site to see if it speeds up any?

I hope this helps.
