Ok I have my new powerbook , and I have our old PC. I have set up a wireless network and it works fine. I am able to share files without a problem, however I am having problems printing from my PoweraBook.

On the PC, I have a HP psc 1210v connected and it set to be shared. So, on my PB I go to the Control Pannel and set up a new printer. I search the network, find the printer and select it. However, the driver is not listed when I select it. I have tried to use the generic and it doesn't work. I have also tried to download the driver, but I don't know where the file is installed.

Can someone tell me where to find the drivers and what extensions do they have?

Thanks!!
