Printer

Set up my printer today. The big problem was that the software on the CD couldn't see the printer over the network while installing.

Solution (as in most hardware installation problems) download the drivers directly from the manufacturer's website.

Advantages to this are: you get the latest drivers, things tend to just work(TM) and you get no crapware installed (your printer works and that's that!).

[If you have a problem getting the your Mac to see the Canon MP560 printer - go to the Canon website and download the drivers!]
