I looked on Lexmark's site and it appears they do not have Vista support for your printer. You might want to contact them about it. I see they have a Live Chat on their technical support page, if you get there when they are open.
The z33 is really old and probably will not get Vista support. Similar printers are really cheap so your best bet is to replace it. Otherwise install the printer as a simillar printer that Vista does recognise. I used to run my z45 as a z42 in Vista as Lexmark did not have Vista drivers for the z45 but Vista came with z42 support. It worked!!! Look for the z32 or something close to z33, you may have to do some trial and error until you find a good one. Not all function might work properly though, I wasn't able to auto-calibrate my z45.
