What Mac are you running the Personal Laserwriter 300 on? I have one of them I got at a Thrift store. Have it on OS9 on a 7600 with a sonnet G3 card. What OS you running on the Mac the printer is hooked to?-

My PL300 uses the old Mac round serial port so I am figuring you are using it on an older Mac with serial ports. If you are running OS9 I would try using Apple Talk for connecting with your other Macs. The PC is another story. I tried to find Postscript drivers for the PL300 and OSX but gave up, so went with OS9 as there are drivers.

Let me know what you are using there and I will try to help you.

Hey, thanks for the reply!

The Personal LW 300 is on a Powermac 6500: It has os 9.1, 4gb hard drive, 96mb ram, and it is 250 mhz. It would be neat if i could print to it through the PC, but i don't know how to!

Thanks in advance
