Hi Chris –
No, I didn’t touch your old computer. I would put it in the storage room because we are planning a major clean-out in the immediate future.
The messages are cryptic, but I would guess it has something to do with leftover bits from the transfer of data from the old computer to the new one.
It may simply be an invalid startup script. To check what is currently set to start up:
Go to the Apple Menu, then System Preferences. Open Users & Groups. Then click on the Login Items tab on the right. What is listed there?

Doesn’t work with the new computer, even though it is listed as one of the options in the printer dialog box. I downloaded the most recent driver I could find, specified for Mac System 9, but it doesn’t work either. Any suggestions?
