    I'm trying to set up a shared windows printer in OSX 10.4. The printer is a Lexmark X84 but there is no driver listed for it, I'm not sure how I would go about finding the driver I need for it. I downloaded the driver from Lexmark but it wants to install it as though the printer is currently installed on the Mac, when it isn't. Any ideas?

    The Lexmark X83 is listed by The Linux Foundation as a paperweight. Your printer is not listed at all. This means that your only alternative is to setup your Windows machine as a PostScript print server for your printer. You may access it from your Mac as a networked generic PostScript printer.
