Archived from groups: microsoft>public>win98>printing (more info?)

I recently reinstalled Windows 98 in my AOpen computer.
Now there is no LPT listed under ports (COM & LPT) in
Device Manager. I have went to Add new hardware and and
added the printer port but I get yellow exclamation mark
when I finish and the printer still does not work. I have
done this several times removing the printer and the
printer port and reloading them both after shutting down
the computer and restarting it. Every time the LPT port
either does not show up or it has a yellow exclamation
mark by it and the printer never shows up in Device
Manager, even though it shows up when I click on the
Printer Icon.

Did you remember to install the motherboard chipset drivers? (From AOpen's
website)
