Step 11: Windows Network Installation

In Microsoft Windows 95 and Windows NT ® 4.0, the installation software detects both the version of Windows that is in use and the language that is selected in the operating system. The installation software then installs printer drivers and printing software that are appropriate for the system.

For Novell NetWare networks, install the software on the workstation.

For Windows NT networks with a client server, install the software on the server. For Windows 95 peer-to-peer networks, install the software on all workstations that need access to the printer.

The installation software does not support shared Windows 3.1
