Install win98
Download and install the driver for the C84 for win98 (or use the CD
that came with the printer).
When asked to do so, plugin and turn on the printer and it will detect
It should then be ready to print.

If you turn on and connect the printer before installing the driver, it
will start asking many stupid questions with no good answers. :)
