Ron! Back in the "old days" when I first started using computers, long before the dot-matrix printer was invented, "emulations" were used NOT drivers. When the dot-matrix printer came about these emulations were of the IBM Pro-Printer and the Epson line of printers usually the LQ-860/850 and the IBM Pro-Printer X24E, Proprinter24P, PS/1 printer, NEC 24-wire Graphics commands. Whatever OS you are using just add the printer based on the closest emulation.
