I'm upgrading my Dell Dimension 8100 with a new hard disk and I'm doing a
clean install of Windows XP Home w/SP2 (upgrading from Win Me). I have an HP
960c Deskjet printer that I would like to reinstall via the computer's
parallel port after I install Windows XP and get it up and running.

Hewlett-Packard has a full-featured driver for the HP 960c that I would like
to download and install rather than the version Windows XP may have available
for the printer.

My question: What is the proper sequence of steps to follow (i.e., when
should the printer be hooked up and connected to the parallel port, Windows
restarted, the HP driver installed, etc.) to properly install the printer
from HP's XP driver?

Thanks for any advice,

Joe D.

Install software before connecting printer. Software should tell you when
to connect.
