My friend's printer is working!
I didn't get to try your directions - by the time I got to her place the printer wasn't working at all. It gave a different error message each time we tried it. Ended up uninstalling/deleting everything printer related and had to run the install disc 5 times, trying different variations, before the files finally downloaded correctly (really - how hard can it be to install a printer!?). Thank you very much for your detailed help. I'm saving the info on printer queues for future reference and hope I can pick your brain when I have problems in the future.
