Note

Step 12. Install Printing Software

The printer comes with printing software on a compact disc. The printer drivers on this compact disc must be installed to take full advantage of the printer features. If your computer does not have a

CD-ROM drive but you have access to one, you can copy the compact disc onto diskettes for installation on your computer.

If you do not have access to a CD-ROM drive, a diskette is provided with the basic printer drivers. (The diskette does not have all of the software available on the compact disc.) The most recent drivers are available on the Internet. Depending on the configuration of

Windows-driven computers, the installation program for the printer software automatically checks the computer for Internet access to obtain the latest software.

See the HP Support pages at the front of the printer user’s guide and the Readme file on the diskette for additional information or to order diskettes if you do not have Internet access.

Installing Network Software

If the printer is to be used on a Novell or Windows NT network, the networking software should be installed and configured on the network before individual users install the printing software.

1 Load the HP JetAdmin software from the compact disc, and run it.

At this time load only

the HP Jet Admin software. Once you have configured the printer on the network, load the additional HP printing software.

2 See the HP JetDirect Print Server software installation guide and the HP JetAdmin software to configure the printer for your network.
