Just guessing, but print manager probably needs to load some files that are on the Windows CD.
Or, if you don't have the CD, your Windows installation directory on the hard drive.

rmarotta is right, but really didnt give you the answer.  MAke sure the you know the path of the driver, easiest thing I think is to have it on a floppy.  Go to install new hardware and click have disk.  browse around and find the folder the driver is in, and if it tells you to insert the windows cd and you dont have the cd click on browse, and point it to the C:\Windows\system\iosubsys.  That should do it!

jacobas,
Windows\System\Iosubsy??
Strange place to find files necessary for a printer driver.
Don't you think I could have given instructions for browsing? (if needed)

mrepair,
Any progress yet?
I suggest you reopen the question if the proposed answer hasn't solved your problem.
Regards,
Ralph
