    I have an hp812c on my paralell port. From the looks of things they
    can't be daisy-chained. I just got an hp712c. I noticed both of these
    printers have paralell and USB connectors. Will it work to just
    connect one to each style port?

    ( one printer for text, one for photos...)

    I assume you can but thought I'd ask before I BSOD myself crazy.

    thanks for any input

    ps--running win2k with athlon and abit mobo..

    You might want to check the HP website for any updated drivers or
    known issues regarding your operating system.

    Another option, especially if you already have a network, is to pick
    up one of the two or three-port print server devices from Linksys,
    DLink, Netgear, etc.

    If you have no network it would just take a network card in your PC
    and a print server device.
