Windows 7: HP Laserjet driver

HP Laserjet driver

I have an HP Laserjet 1020 that I can't get to work with my OS (Windows 7 Beta 32-bit). I found the driver on the HP site, but it will not function with this Beta system, and Windows will not recognize the printer as a printer; it just comes up as a device. How do I solve this problem?

I already looked through the updates catalogue and found nothing that looked right. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I lost the CD that came with the printer a long time ago. Do you think that I could download the XP version of the driver?

and try Comatability with 98, if the printer is old it might have a hit, worked with

Alright, I'm having trouble locating a driver that is specifically designed for XP. And in addition, I need someone to explain to me how to run these things in "compatability mode," because I'm totally lost.
