Bear in mind that I am not using adverts as my source of information but the printer sitting next to my desk. > My Dell, you need the computer to configure it, but then everything is > controlled from the printer front panel. It's exactly the same with my HP. You don't even need a windows program to configure it, although they do supply one, as the printer has a built in web server for configuration. And if you plug in a USB stick it opens a menu that includes an option to scan to the stick. -- Neil Bothwick Help put the "fun" back in "dysfunctional" !
