OS8.5 - Can't see Deskjet870Cse in Chooser

I just upgraded to MacOS 8.5 from 8.1.  Now I can't see my HP Deskjet 870Cse printer in the Chooser.  I accessed HP.com and got the lastest driver AND a "flash" program that was supposed to fix this problem, but it didn't.

Anyone run into this and got a fix?  I hope?

Thanks!

Are you using the regular or appletalk drivers for the printer. Make sure appletalk is then turned on or off and the correct port is choosen.
