NT from personal experince with 8 of them on my network does not like 890C
drivers. NT will drop it's RPC Server and die, try that on a network print
server. HP says the newer release fixed this but it did nothing to help us.
On HP Printers you can use the universal series drivers 500 550C 600C 660C
on most printers except for the Windows only printers, yes HP makes these
and no DOS apps will not print. Yes you will loose all of the HP ads and
some funtionality but the printers will work fine.

Hi Jeremy,

Were you able to download the driver? Did you try it?
