Print from an iMac to an HP 4000

Hello!

I currently run off a PC network. I do have my iMac networked and that is fine. My problem is that I cannot print from the iMac. I have an HP 4000 and the appropriate network card for my printer. How do I go about setting up the printer on the iMac?

Thank you.

Linda

What OS? 9? OS X?

9: Open your Chooser. Select LaserWriter 8. Setup. Select the HP 4000 PPD. Done.

OS X: Open your Print Center. Click "Add". Pick a connection method and a printer. You may want to use IP printing in which case youll enter the IP of your printer. Pick a printer model.

Ok, first download and install the 4000 PPD from the HP website. Install it if it isnt already. Open your chooser. Select the LaserWriter 8 driver. Click the setup button, and follow the directions given. This includes picking the PPD.

That's the Postscript Printer Description file. You get it from HP.
