HP Laserjet 2300dn software install problems!!!!

  plumbit 18:22 24 May 2007

1.purchased hp laseerjet 2300dn with pre-installed jetdirect 615.
2.Had new computer (XP) networked with old computer (windows ME).
No software - advised to go to HP Website to download driver software;

3.Went to HP Website to download software for printer driver, downloaded ok, saved to desktop.
4. opened in desktop and unzipped to my documents.
- went to my documents & there are 31 items,(look like 2 drawer filing cabinets) seems all the same content but each one has a slightly different number. Not sure what I have done!!!

Any advice on how to put this right please?? - or what I should do next??

Thanks in advance.

Unzipping a printer driver to My Documents is a rather odd place to choose.

You should have been prompted to unzip to somewhere like your desktop or C:/Program Files/HP.

There should be a setup.exe file or something similar to start the installation.
