I just completed setting up my new computer, a 2.2 gig Pentium 4 running under Windows XP Professional. It is networked to my old computer via an ethernet router. Everything seems to work fine in terms of "seeing" each drive's contents and printers from the other. My printers, an Epson Stylus Photo EX and Epson 3000, are connected to the parallel port of the old computer. I can print to either one from the new computer, but the Printer dialogs I see for the EX are the Windows default version which are useless since I can't apply a custom printer profile. I installed the latest version of both drivers that I could find on the new computer, so I now see two "phantom" printers as well as the "real" ones (the ones connected to my old computer) in my XP Printers and Faxes window. What do I have to do to get the Epson driver to show up when I send a document to print instead of the Windows default driver? Secondly, should I uninstall the "phantom" printers? I don't anticipate connecting them to the new computer anytime soon because of space constraints. Bernie - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
