Can't get Dell 1600N to print on OS9.1

I've tried just about every driver, and i can't get this printer to print.  I'm an Apple novice, so I could really use some help.  Thanks!

You should be able to print to it using the Apple Laserwriter driver and IP printing as follows:

How to Configure IP printing

      1. Launch the Desktop Printer Utility.
      2. Select "Printer (LPR)" and click OK.
      3. In the "PostScript Printer Description (PPD) File" section, click on "Change..." and select the PPD for your printer.
      4. In the "LPR" section, click on "Change..." to bring up the Internet Printer window.
      5. Enter the printer's IP address or domain name for "Printer Address".
      6. Enter the queue name, if used. Otherwise, leave it blank.
      7. Click on "Verify" to verify that the printer was found.
      8. Click OK.
      9. Go to the File menu and select "Save".
      10. Enter a name and location for the desktop printer icon and click OK. The default name is the printer's IP address, and the default location is on the desktop.

Then go to Chooser and select the Apple LaserWriter driver in the left pane.

You might also have to extract the PPD file from the CD which came with the printer and install it as well.
      11. Quit.
