    Being new to an Imac I am missing a step or two on installing a printer. Here's the scenario:

    I have a brother printer being shared on a PC .

    I downloaded the correct Mac driver for this printer on my Imac and clicked on the package to "unzip" it.
    What I saw during the unzipping is that it prompted where it wanted to place trhe files and that was my Macintosh Drive. I followed the instructions and it completed.

    When I tried to install the network printer it was seen on the network and I then needed to tell the system where to look for the driver. This is where I became unsure because I don't know where the driver was saved to .

    Can some one enlighen me on this procedure.

    Why do you need to point to the driver at all? If it sees the network printer it should work... just select it from the list when you go to print.
