XP is great but !!! I have a laser printer (ibm) which has a driver that xp does'nt seem to recognise. Every time my pc is on and i turn on the printer i have to stop the wizard, very annoying. IBM don't do a good xp driver so can i stop the wizard for this one printer only ?

Try letting it run through, rather than cancelling it.

I had the same problem with via ide bus masters and could find no way of stopping the wizard each time the pc was switched on. Lo and behold having run the xp sp2 pack it no longer runs the wizard at switch on. Try it you might like it. This is 1 of over 10 pcs successfully upgraded to sp2 with no problems [so far] touch wood, fingers crossed etc.
