    I was trying to print to my offices Canon ColorPass M20 (Fiery Rip) today from my iBook, the only drivers that I can find for it (on either Canon.com or Fiery's site) are for OS 9 (drivers dated 2002). Can someone suggest where I might be able to find the drivers that I need to get this working with OS X, or a possible work around?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you can get the actual PPD file, I believe you should be able to use it, whether its OS9 or OS X.

    Just drop it into this folder:

    Macintosh HD::Library::printers::pPDs::Contents::Resources::en.lproj

    Then go to printer utility and delete the printer if you already have added it.
    Add New printer, select it and do a custom PPD, then browse to the PPD you just copied.

    Voilà! You should be set.
