If I remember correctly, the folks at easysw still are fighting some
quirks with that
software (putting the CUPS related extensions into it), but you may use
the original
driver supplied with the W2K system as it is.


PS: Be aware that that driver has serious issues with certain Type1
fonts (so called
Pi-fonts) the glyphs of which have names outside the WinAnsi range.
