Thank you Bryan. Another lister, Chris, having trouble communicating
via Mac Network sent me essentially similar advice, and instructions
and I am indebted. I was able to print from the QS in TextEdit. In
the Classic programs I had to fiddle about as it said no printer
known etc... but succeeded (no box comes up to give me options for
number of copies as on the 7300... but it is early days! I was just
pleased to be able to print anything from the QS!) I found an option
to make a desktop printer and I can drag things to it on the QS and
it worked on my brief test. It looks so good on the desktop;
"Laserwriter 4 600 PS" it calls itself!
For anyone who might want the link to LocalTalk Bridge:
