iMac print problem to SW2500

My new iMac DV (OS9) freezes every time I try to print with my SW2500.  I'm using Appleworks 5, but the printing problem seems to be with any application.  I'm using a Keyspan USB to serial adapter.  I've selected the SW2500 in the Chooser with the USB port.  I have 64 MB of RAM.  Any suggestions?

Are you using the latest SW 2500 printer driver? Have you replaced that printer driver with a fresh one off apples web site?

Good point.  I updated when I moved to OS8, but I haven't since I bought the iMac with OS9.  I'll check that tomorrow.  Good advice.  Thanks Weed.  Ed
