    hello! i am new here, so treat me like a noob! =)

    I just set up internet printing for a fax connected to our advanced server 2003 r2 64-bit. I am actually able to add it as an internet printer on my xp machine when i finally get to the part where it asks for the driver. I point it to the driver on the disk (this is a trendnet TFM-560U which uses the Agere driver) and it says 'The specified location does not contain information about your hardware.' Am I missing something? It doesn't even list the Agere company in the list of drivers after I just right-click on the inf and choose install. This is the same driver thats installed on the server (except it uses the 64-bit version)..should i use that one? Is there anyway to force it to use this driver even though it says..well, that its not a driver?

    also, on a side note - I used to be able to just goto the server.com/printers/ click on my printer, and choose connect on the left side. That option isn't there any more..is this a group policy setting i need to change?

    Thanks everyone!
