    On my way to getting to Windows 7 I upgraded to Vista from XP in a new
    partition. I still have a partition running XP. I have a HP 4000n network
    printer which I can print to from the XP partition and which is used by two
    other computers. I originally used the HP Install Printer Wizard to install
    that printer in XP. In the Vista partition I downloaded and installed HP
    Install Printer Wizard 8.1. However, it did not find my laser printer - the
    same one that I print to every day from the XP partition. I turned off
    Windows firewall and disabled Norton firewall - the printer was still not
    detected. I completely uninstalled Norton Internet Security - the printer
    was still not detected. Anyone have an idea of what might be wrong or how I
    might install the network printer so that it is accessible in the Vista
    partition?
