I'm not printing at all.  When I looked on the net to see what is wrong I'm told that I can't use a HP Deskjet 500 as a local printer, that it needs to be a network printer.  How do I get my printer set up as a local printer?

First of all it isn't true that you can't use a HP Deskjet 500 as a local printer. What OS do you use. If yopu use Windows 95 your printer should be able to be installed with your Windows 95 CD. (I have the same printer and it works without any problem)

Commented:
all you should have to do is set it up on lpt1.

The HP500 is a local only printer. HP doesn't support the HP500 as a network printer (not to mention that they no longer support you product at all, the bums).

Anyway. Do you want a discussion on how to activate the "Add Printer" icon in the "Printers" section on the task bar? Like rbr says, Win95 should recognise your printer and install the drivers without any trouble.

Maybe there is more information that you need to give so that we can get to the root of your trouble if the advice given thus far isn't helpful.
