    I have my iMac running 10.5.6, my Airport Extreme w/ new updated firmware and an HP psc 1200 all in one. Printer works fine connected to iMac but I'm trying to set it up through my A.E. When I try to "Add Printer" it shows my HP and under the "Kind" column is says "Bonjour". It asks me to select a driver under a dropdown menu. There are many HP printers listed there but not mine. Where do I look for drivers when I choose "Other"? I hope I've given enough info for my question. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    When you don't see the driver, it means the driver doesn't work with that comm protocol.

    Get either a newer Gutenprint or get the three-part hpijs driver from here (you need to do the reading to figure out which will work):
