I think that the answer that they are implying is that you should install both the Microsoft and the Epson drivers. In the Printer panel, add only the Epson printers using the Epson drivers and let Microsoft install plug and play the printers with its driver. You can then select either as the default printer or the printer that you want to print from on any given ocassion; you can also select between the two versions which version you care to share as the network printer over the network, leaving the other as a local printer only. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Bernie Epstein Sent: Sunday, June 09, 2002 7:30 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Printer drivers on a networked computer Second try. Surely some guru out there using Windows XP can point me in the right direction with this. A couple of other people have remarked about the persistent default XP drivers (they come back automatically after you uninstall them if you reboot). TIA, Bernie.
