I suspect that if a Windows 98SE driver existed for this printer, it would be listed on the page you gave a link to. Again, I can't find any evidence that a Windows 98SE driver was ever written for it.

In it's User Manual (page 4), it states the following:

OPERATING SYSTEM COMPATIBILITY:
Windows Vista
Windows Vista x64
Windows Server 2003
Windows Server 2003 x64
Windows XP
Windows XP x64
Windows 2000
Macintosh OS X (v10.2+)
Macintosh OS X (Intel 10.4+)
Linux Red Hat 9
Linux SuSE 8.2


further proof that a Windows 98SE driver does not exist.

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for your input on this. I think that your 100% correct, there doesn't appear to be official driver support. I still hold out hope that somebody has managed to get this printer working in Windows 98 using an "unofficial" driver.

Again, thanks for your response.

Kind Regards,

Davo

Have you tried any of the drivers included with the OS? Try a few like HP Laserjet II/III, Epson FX or LX, IBM Proprinter, etc. There might be one that will give you basic printing. No disk is needed.... just click on Add New Printer.......

Hi Jerry,

I settled on a PDF printer - CutePDF, which works quite well in Windows 98. Now I am printing to PDF in Windows 98 (which I have running as a Virtual OS), dragging the PDF file from the Windows 98 desktop to a Windows 7 (host) desktop and then performing actual printing from Windows 7 (which definitely has official driver support).

You have to love Virtualization!

Thanks for your help.

Cheers

Davo
