I'm trying to install a new hp lj 4014n on our print server, without going through hp's clunky software suite.  How do I know which .inf file to use?  For now I'm just guessing.  Here are the .inf files I can chose from:

hpc4015c.inf
hpzius13.inf
hpzid4vp.inf
hpzid413.inf
hpzipa13.inf
hpzipr13.inf
hpzist13.inf

Open the inf file with notepad, you then should be able to see what printer, os it is for.

for some files you can figure out what it is from their name:
hpziUS13.inf is the USB driver
hpziST13.inf should be the storage DOT4 driver

There is some logic int there, haven't figured out all of it yet though........
