    Thank you so much, however it still does not show in os9. It works in os 10 just fine. I really need it to work in 9.

System preference, print & fax icon, add a printer (no need to use the software install disk), when you add the printer use the default protocol: Line Printer Daemon-LPD, address if you know your IP address type that in if not type in localhost and this will locate your printer and fill the print using field.

Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, if it fails go back in and under the print using field scroll for the driver or printer model, and selelct - Brother HL-525ODN or whatever brand you are trying to conect to and save.

I have been given a lexmark x75, with no instructions how do i install this


It would be better if you install the software/driver first in your computer. The software also shows you the instructions on how to setup the printer itself. Here are the drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. Just click on the driver compatible with your computer's operating system.
- Lexmark X75 AIO Printer driver for Mac OS X, Mac OS X 10.1, Mac OS X 10.1.5, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.2.1, Mac OS X 10.2.8, Mac OS X 10.3.x, and Mac OS X 10.4.x.
- Custom Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000
- Driver for Microsoft Windows XP
These are the only available drivers. That means the printer is not compatible with Mac 10.5, Mac 10.6, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
For additional information, here's the Setup Sheet (Lexmark X74, X75) and the User's Guide (Lexmark X74, X75) . Hope this helps.

Please visit the GCC website: gccprinters.com. Under the Support tab, you will see instructions for connecting the printer to your Mac. Please understand there is no "driver" under Postscript printing. You install the printer description into the Library folder using the installer on the website.

Installing a later version of mac to to get the printer to work


Here is a link for the Mac OS 9 driver for the MFC-420cn:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/dlf/000000/000600/dlf000680.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc420cn_us&type2=1&os=9&flang=4&dlid=dlf000680



If you need a newer version of Mac OS , you would have to purchase it. Mac OS does not update from 9.1 to 10.X
Mac 9.1 is about 10 years old.

In May 2002, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, Steve Jobs, accompanied by a coffin, held a mock funeral[5] to announce that Apple had stopped development of Mac OS 9. Mac OS 9.2.2, introduced in December 2001, was the final version of Mac OS 9, and the end of the classic Mac OS.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
