Stewart,

Your headers show you're using a web interface to newsgroups.
Which portal (URL) are you using? If it lists the newsgroup I added
you may be able to enter it just by clicking on the link to it in the header
of my message.

Do your two OS share drives?
Something I would try if you don't get any better ideas
would be printing to file and then printing the file with the
OS which can operate your printer. Actually I suppose
another possibility on the same tack would be emailing
yourself the file and then receiving it and printing it on
the other system.

Thank you for your assistance with the ideas you provided. I have one
operating system on my computer. I took the plunge and went to Beta2. It
seems to be functional except for the printing aspect. What I may very well
end up doing is reinstalling after I put the printer driver back on and
"upgrade."

Respectfully,
