HP Printer Setup Instructions for the New Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard
If you're updating from Mac OS X v10.2, v10.3, or v10.4 to new Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard:
USB connection: If your HP printer is connected via USB, the Leopard OS install will automatically update your printer queue with the latest HP driver.
Network connection: If your HP printer is connected via Ethernet or Wireless network, the Leopard install will automatically delete all networked printer queues. After install you'll need to Open System Preferences, Print & Fax, to add your printer and create a new HP printer queue.
Bonjour: If you have only one printer queue that was created via Bonjour, including printer connected to USB port on Airport Extreme/Express Base Station, this printer queue should be automatically recreated as part of the Leopard OS install.
Note: this process only works if there is just one printer queue. If there are multiple printer queues, please refer to step B, above.
