I'm trying to find a postscript driver (for an HP printer) which would allow me to print 2up and 4up. So far the research has proven unsuccessful. This is the only thing that is preventing me from upgrading from Win98 to NT4. I cannot believe that something so simple and that is already implemented for Win95 and Win98 was not implemented for NT. Thanks in advance for your help...

There is not a custom driver yet for NT, I am still waiting for one to be developed. There is a very good plug-in for Adobe Acrobat though on the market. It's called quite imposing plus. You will be able to do all the imposition work such as 2, 4, n up and more that you want.
You can get this plug-in from www.quite.com.
If you don't have Adobe exchange I would recommend this product also as PDF is becoming and increasinly important file format.
If your documents are not in PDF already you can convert then using a number of plug-in availible or by printing to file using a PostScript driver and then converting it to PDF using Adobe Distiller which comes with acrobat.
Once you have the PDF you can then create you 2 up documents in a WYSIWYG fashion and print.
Hope this is an acceptable alternative.

First: I don't intend to pay for something that I can have for free if I don't "upgrade" the OS.
Second: I don't think that turning the entire documentation that comes with the MSDN into PDF is a possible/acceptable alternative. Nor turning all the web pages I may come across and would want to print. The fact is that I print a lot and 2up printing saves me a lot of paper.
Third: thanks a lot for your kind help. I didn't think I could obtain much more than that, but I tried anyway. Still I cannot quite understand what is keeping the NT engineers from porting the 95/98 drivers to NT...
