    I would like to to be able to hook up another printer and be able to switch back and fourth. What are the steps to do this?

    Hmm..I haven't tried this myself, but if the 2nd printer has a USB connector, I think you should be fine with two printers.

    Not sure how you'd hook up two parallel connections to a PC. Probably an adaptor out there somewhere.

    If you have one parallel and one USB or two USB printers it is no problem. Once both are installed you select one as the default printer from the printers folder. If you print using the print icon in most software it prints from the default printer at the default settings. If you go File>Print you can select which printer you want to print to in the top line of the first screen that appears.
