Can you provide some more info on your system? You may have to go into BIOS and enable the printer port. Also, do you mean you dont have a CD drive or a Win95 CD?

What printer port do you have selected it should be LPT1 if its a local port using a parallel cable. Also check in your BIOS that in the
Parallel port option that ECP is selected and that option>>>
Onboard parallel port is set to 378h. then save and exit and reboot system.

Good luck
