I had the same problem. After 2 weeks & 8 phone calls, a gentleman from

HP's Mac support called me & FEDEX'd HP's DeskWriter Driver v3.1. It is not

available at any HP ftp site currently, though, he indicated that that had

been a discussion topic. The gentlman's name is Jim Nelson; phone#

208-333-5397. BTW- He did not recommend the current driver (which is

dw110en.hqx at their website) for use on 68020 processors, even though it

WILL run.

Call HP directly, customer service I presume. If you are in the US they

probably have an 800 number. call 1-800-555-1212 to find it or email them .

They were very helpful when I needed a particular driver where I could not

find their diskette. In one case they told me where I could ftp it from and

exactly what it was called--some wierd name on some obscure HP ftp site. .

In another case they told me to simply use the Apple Laser 8 driver, and it

would work just fine. Donna Pointer
