PostScript® Printing Without a Printer- Windows® XP - Part Three
5. The next screen asks you to choose a manufacturer
and printer. In this case we will choose Apple®
as the manufacturer (but this is not the only manufacturer
of PostScript printers). If you don't see Apple as an
available manufacturer, then you can click the "Have
Disk" button and install it from the operating
system CD that comes with the computer. The point is
that there are plenty of PostScript printers that come
with the operating system so you need not worry if you
have one or not. You may have to install them from the
CD at this step, though.
From the left pane choose "Apple" and
from the right pane choose "Apple Color LW
12/660 PS" then click the "Next"
button. You can also choose one of the other "PS"
printers from the list.

6. The next screen asks you to give the new printer
a name. This will be the name of the printer which will
appear in the Printers and Faxes folder and in the list
of available printers in your applications.
Windows will insert the printer name into the
text box. Choose "No" for the question
"Do you want to use this printer as the default
printer?" then click the "Next" button.
