Actually, now that I think about it...  Perhaps I'm not completely 
accurate with that statement.

In fact, when I double-click to open the printer, it does connect and 
give me a print-queue window.  It's only when I trying to bring up the 
properties for that printer that it tells me no driver is installed and 
asks if I want to search for one.

However, even if I say "no", the properties dialog does come up (just 
the print queue settings -- no printer driver options) and I can 
successfully print a test page.

So...  What am I missing?

           Until we are first independent, we cannot be interdependent.
