    I am trying to install a printer through installation cd and also with downloaded driver but in both cases install screen vanishes half way through the screen shows the desktop again....

    I tried through add printer wizard and also found new h/w wizard wizard...but still the install screen vanishes midway....
    Tried installinh through MSCONFIG mode selective startuop...still failed...the screen vanishes...

    I would just like to know if it is OS issue or printer driver issue or troiuble with the printer
