How do I install a printer driver on a Macintosh?
Start or restart your Macintosh with Extensions OFF. Before installing the driver, go the Chooser, ensure AppleTalk is inactive, then close the Chooser. Insert Disk 1 into your floppy disk drive. A window should open up with the icons for the Installer, Installer Script, Install Files, README1st, and TeachText. Double-click on the Installer icon, then click Continue. Select the Serial Driver Package and click on Install. After the system has finished installing files from Disk 1, the disk will be ejected and you will be prompted to insert Disk 2. Remove Disk 1 and insert Disk 2 to continue installation. When the system is finished installing files from Disk 2, you will be asked to insert Disk 1 again. Remove Disk 2 and insert Disk 1 to complete the installation. Make sure your printer is ON, then Restart. Disk 1 will be ejected automatically while the Macintosh restarts. After restart, go to the Chooser and select the Stylus COLOR printer icon. If the port setting is correct, click Confirm. A window will appear with the message "Your printer is Stylus 500." Click OK. Disable Background printing. If you must use Background printing, your system must have a minimum of 6MB of unused RAM that can be dedicated to the EPSON Monitor2 and your operating system. If you are using Background printing, go to the EPSON Monitor2, go to File and select Get Info. Change the Minimum amount setting to 2000 and the Preferred amount setting to 3000, then close the EPSON Monitor2.
