Hello, I have an Epson Tm-U325 (USB) printer than I'm trying to install.  The printer came with no CD, and the Epson site is of no help.  I have several other of these printers installed through a serial port using the generic/text driver and they all work fine, but this PC does not have a serial or parallel port.  this is a new PC running XP pro, but it does not have a USB port available.  I've read that I should install another USB printer that would create the USB printer port, but thats not an option.   Is there any way that I can add the USB printer port manually?

thanks,
