Need windows 98 Printer driver for Samsung ML 2950

Hi,

My doctor friend has a windows 98 machine for doing heart tests. He really does not want to change o/S and computers  because it works really well and he knows how to use the program in its current form.

Unfortunately, his printer broke (beyond repair) and he purchased a Samsung ML 2950 laser printer.

He does not require all the features of this print except straight printing.

Can anyone recommend a Windows 98 driver and where I can find it that will work for him?

Thanks,

Mark

Try using a built in driver that comes with Windows 98, like the HP Laserjet 4 which supports PCL5e, which the new printer also seems to support.
I agree with rindi. The only possible issue is tray selection, as different printers use different codes for the same tray. Select a printer that has  a single tray and manual feed like the Samsung. The LJ4 has a similar arrangement.

To install it, use the Add Printer wizard. When asked for the printer type, select HP and the printer model.
