    I am trying to set up my Macbook Pro to use my network-connected Lexmark Z25 printer, but am unable to select the correct model in Printer Setup, I'm assuming because the drivers aren't there. I tried reinstalling the Lexmark Drivers Package but to no avail. I finally was able to find the specific drivers I needed in an .hqx file. Does anyone know how to install the printer drivers from that file? Hopefully I can add my printer to the list that way.

    .hqx file is a compressed file format , uncompress first...use StuffIt Expander

    Actually .hqx is a BinHex file, but the solution is the same: Stuffit Expander.

    Hmm, now it says that the "Archive is compressed with an unknown compression method." I downloaded the drivers from macupdate, but they don't offer any instructions on how to use them. Hopefully I can get this to work, as this is my only printer.
