Installing Laserjet 5L

Can't get my head round what's going on with my HP Laserjet 5L. Attempting to install it on my W2K machine I get an error message after the driver install of 'THE PRINTER NAME IS INVALID' - anyone got any ideas ?

The driver you have doesn't support W2K. (Hence printer name etc)

Download the drivers from here

That's not the answer ! There is no way to install drivers. W2K PNP finds and installs the HP printer without any requests for drivers or disks.

Overcame the problem by installing Laserlet on XP machine and then sharing across LAN - not exactly a solution but has sorted it.
