Sub_title: It works, though odd.....

When I upgraded to Puppy 3.00, I found it necessary to wipe my hard drive, however I again had printer problems. It took some time but I was finally able to get my Lexmark Z52 printer to work with Puppy 3.00. However, it wasn't how I would have expected it to work.

I swapped out my 40Gb SeaGate for 60Gb Maxtor. I simply wiped the Maxtor, set up three partitions, then copied the contents from the SeaGate to the Maxtor. After that I installed grub to /dev/hda1 then I rebooted the computer. From there, since cups won't allow me to set up a printer without a password for root, I simply used the pdq print wizard and it worked. Naturally I did some odd things to get it to work.

Printer Name: Clyde
Location: Home
Model: LexMark

I also set it to send EOF.

That is what it took to finally get my printer to work with puppy, never mind that I running a pentium4.

My only puzzle is why is it that swapping out the hard drive and naming the printer "Clyde" worked?

Edited for clarification.
