I've installed the software as on the disc..  but the R285 isn't on the list I have to choose from.

The computer has never been connected to the internet, due to various circumstances - how do I get the driver onto the selected list?

The drivers should be on your system CD disks, but you will have to install the optional drivers. Otherwise, you can download the Gutenprint drivers from here: http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php

Here is the driver direct from Epson.  If you have the print utility open, quit it then download and install the file ad restart the print utility.
