Thank youThe software is already installed as part of the default installation of MacOS X. The LaserWriter 4/600PS is a PostScript printer. It uses Apple's PostScript driver, as does every other PostScript printer. You should select the correct PPD file. Use Printer Setup Utility to setup your printer. It can be found in Applications > Utilities. For Classic, I find that Apple's LaserWriter printer driver does not work with MacOS X 10.3. However, Adobe's Postscript driver works fine. It can be downloaded from Adobe's website. You use the Chooser to setup your printer in Classic.
