This driver works fine with MacOS 7.6.1, 8.6, 9.1 and 9.2.2 with the original DeskWriter! It's NOT just for the 500 series.

Re the question of how to open the .hqx extension:

Use the Stuffit Expander. Open the Stuffit, select "Expand" from the drop-down "File" tab, select your the directory or disk that contains your.hqx file and click on "Open, select your .hqx file and click on "Expand", select or create a destination file and click on "Expand Into ....". This should do it. You will then have a driver that you can select with your Chooser.

These were the directions given by HP at their site. Now can someone help me? - my Mac locks up after I do this.
