    Hi!

    I assume you already checked here for the drivers:
    http://www.fargo.com/tech_support/archive.asp

    If the one you need is not listed, you might get in touch wuth Fargo. Often one of the newer printers is code-compatible with an older one, and you can use the newer driver.

    If not, you may, however, be able to use a driver made for a different printer. For example, the Fargo you have may be code-compatible with an Epson. Again, the Fargo people could probably tell you this.

    You wouldn't emulate Win95 for just a printer driver. The driver needs to be written to be compatible with the OS.

    Thanks for the info, I did already check for drivers, etc, and also contacted fargo about the drivers, and they just don't offer any suggestions or solutions, I will probally end up setting up an old pentium as a print server, it's too bad that the manufacturer won't support their products, it is an awesome printer and blows away even todays ink jets...thanks again.
