I have a windows network combined with a new ibook ( intel proc).
I bought by mistake an OKI C3200N networkprinter wich appearently is not compatible with mac.
Is there any way that I can use this printer with my mac??

you can try sharing it from a Windows PC. Load appletalk on the WIndows PC so your mac can see it. You will then basically be using the windows machine as a quosi print server.

can you be more specific on this?
Can't I use the network function of this printer?
Where do find Appletalk please? And what is a quosi print server?

Depending on your version of MAC, you can use lpr to print to OKIDATA. I don't have a MAC system, but assign IP address to your okidata printer, then install LPR on your apple machine, if it does not have drivers, use generic PS or PCL driver.
