Trying to install a network printer
its an all in one HP officejet 710 series
its installed locally on NT4 server
In win2k when I try to install it as a network printer. I browse to shared printer I can see it on NT4 computer, but it keeps asking for an .Inf file there are no win2k drivers for for this printer
The last time I did this it took me to a menu of all the printers and I chose HP deskjet
600 and it worked OK
How can I get to this menu again ?

It used to be installed locally on win95 when I did the
HP deskjet 600 trick since I moved printer to NT4 I cant do this

at the point that the wizard asks for the .inf file, there should be a radio button offering you the opportunity to "list all similar devices" or a button saying "have disk".

as an alternative, you can download the driver in advance.  it's available from hp at:

Actually I found a win2k driver.  It's for the 700 series and should work fine.  Click on the following link. http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/cposupport/swdl.pl?c=oj702&i=oj702en&p=hpofficeje7260&n=hp+officejet+model+710+all-in-one
