I have a Windows 98 Machaine 1st edition that is hooked up to a 4 port hub. I have a Ricoh AF551 Printer that i need to network to it. When i go to setup the Printer i choose Local Printer then go add port but i dont see where i can put in a TCP/IP address. Any help on how i can do this would be great. Thanks

I was doing some reasearch and i guess there is no option in Windows 98 Printer Wizard for the TCP/IP Standard Port.

Whenever I have to install a network printer in windows 98 and there is no TCP/IP Standard Port option I just download the HP Network Printer Wizard.  http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/pscmisc/vac/us/en/sm/network_software/install_overview.html?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

It works for all printers not just HP's

I'm confused, if you are trying to Network the printer, why are you selecting Local Printer?  Can you select Network Printer or is the printer physically connected to your hub?

I actually wanted to setup it up as a Local Printer and then choose the TCP/IP Standard Port Option. Thanks for all the help guys. I am going with the HP Network Printer Wizard since it works with all printers.....
