How can I install just printer software?

Arthur Evans Jr
I bought an iMac with Snow Leopard to upgrade from Tiger on a G4.
After updating the OSX to 10.6.8 I used Migration Assistant to copy
all of my files. OK.

But, my Canon MX850 printer no longer works. Whenever I try to print
something the file shows up in the window marked "Error".

So, I went to the install disk intending to install just printer
software, but it wouldn't let me uncheck "Install OSX". I do NOT want
to install Snow Leopard again.

"Take Control of Upgrading to Snow Leopard" doesn't seem to help.

How can I install just needed printer software?

Thanks.

Go to the Canon web site and download the printer software there.

Arthur, instead of using the install disk, just download the latest driver. It will be much quicker, I think.

Good luck.
