Hi folks

I have just updated a PC to Xp from a Dell with Win98SE to XPSP2 & have to
fit a HP Deskjet 610C printer and HP Scanjet 3200C scanner to a pass-thru'
parallel port (LPT1)

Is there any particular sequence to do this?
I think the best way is to install the printer & ensure it works, then
install the scanner with the printer daisychained whilst installing. I
believe the BIOS needs to be set to EPP??
Is this correct?
I have downloaded the scanner driver for XP & I understand that the printer
will install using XP's own driver.

Would be grateful if anybody could confirm this is correct - or give me step
by step instructions for other methods.
Have looked on the net for info, but there doesn't seem to be much info on
parallel & XP with scanner and printer connections.

Thanks for any help,
Karen

XP does not support parallel port daisy-chaining. Change one (or preferably
both) to USB.

or get a PCI card with extra parallel port on it?

Thanks folks - wasn't aware of that one!
I have a parallel port card & will use that as well as the onboard one!

Cheers,
Karen
