Printer driver for HP 722 (RH 5.1)
Posted on 1998-12-26
I'm going to setup RH 5.1 and win98 in a dual boot setup and I have a HP 722C printer. The problem I have is that I previously ran this setup and never could find any information on drivers for this device. I am very new to linux, but previously, I had major problems with the bootup process (modifying the MBR-causing win95/98 to not be able to boot). I read somewhere that I might be able to use LOADLIN as opposed to LILO and it may be safer (not editing my MBR), and I could "share" devices/files with my current windows installation. Is this correct? I'm running a PII-333 (overclocked to 416Mhz) with 64 Mram/USR 56k sportster/Matrox Mystique video card/Monster 3d card/Adaptec AVA-2902E/I scsi card with a HP 5P scanner/SB AWE 64 GOLD. Is there any problem with these devices and linux (no driver availability)? I've checked the driver lists and not found any indications of problems, but some of these devices I've been unable to find ANY information on. Thanks much!
