    I just bought my first Mac. I would like to print to a HP deskjet 712c printer shared on a xp machine, but OSx doesn't have a driver for it and I didn't have any luck on HP.com or through Google. Does anyone know a source or substitute driver that will work.

    I bought a hp4580 with the iMac using the rebate but from what I can tell so far the 712 has a lot fewer jams and feed problems. I hooked the new printer up an hour ago and have already had more jams than all year on the old printer.

    I would give the Open Printing driver a go it says it works perfectly in their database.
