I am changing computers that I am using my brother MFC-8460N multi-printer on. I have the disc to use on the macintosh but I am now putting it on my PC? Any suggestions? Can I get the install information online?

Yes this is possible. Depending on the type of installation that has been done on the computer, you can even scan documents to your computer as a network scanner.
You can check and see if all the features have been installed on your computer. Click on start, all programs, and look for the folder called brother. If you can find brother you can look for the sub category for Conrtrol Center. From Control Center you can scan by clicking on one of the icons. Like file or image.
If none of this is installed, get your installation disk and install the software, you can do a network installation or a Local (USB) installation.
If you decide to do a Local installtion remember to only plug in the USB cable when promted to.
If you decide to do a network installation, the machine should already be installed on the network, which I assume it is since its being used as a network Printer.
Please let me know if any of this info was usefull, and if you require more info about this.
Perhaps you can download the software. This table from Brother support lists the drivers available for the MFC-240C and Windows 2000: (click the "more information" link before downloading if you are unsure)
Looks like <0> followed by <3> will let you input your fax number, phone number and company name. When you need letters instead of numbers experiment with the keypad. For example to input the letter "c" press the <2> three times. To input the letter "h" press the <4> key twice. You will get the hang of this easily.
I cant find the machine DCP-7020 but I think this machine is the same with model MFC-7420 if you have the installer CD follow these steps:
For USB Interface Cable Users For Mac OS® 9.1 to 9.2 & Software 1 Turn off and
unplug the MFC from the AC outlet and disconnect it from your Macintosh, if you
already connected an interface cable. 2 Turn on your
Macintosh. 3 Insert the
supplied CD-ROM for Macintosh into your CD-ROM drive. 4 Double-click the Start Here OS 9.1-9.2 icon to install the printer and scanner
drivers. If the language screen appears,
select your language. 5 Click MFL-Pro Suite to install. 6 Follow the
on-screen instructions, and restart your Macintosh. 7 Connect the USB
interface cable to your Macintosh, and then connect it to the MFC. DO NOT connect the MFC to a USB port on a keyboard or a nonpowered USB hub. 8 Plug in the power
cord and turn on the MFC. 9 From the Apple menu,
open the Chooser. 10 Click the Brother Laser icon. On the right side of the Chooser, select the MFC to which you want to print. Close the Chooser. The MFL-Pro Suite, Printer driver and Scanner driver have been
installed. To install Presto! PageManager, click the 11 Presto! PageManager icon and follow the on-screen
instructions. Presto! PageManager has
been installed and the installation is now complete. You can easily scan, share and organize photos
and documents using Presto!PageManager.
