I linux 11.2 installed on a desktop pc and windows 07 on a laptop. I want to use the same printer for the two equipment so i purchased a printer data switch which comes with a windows cd containing device drivers for windows. How do I resolve the linux issue in respect of drivers. please assist.

Can you let us know the make and model of the data switch? And is this a USB connection or a parallel port one? All the data switches that I've ever used (and I've used quite a few over the years) haven't needed drivers, but I guess it might be different with a USB one.
