Printer driver
I got a Minolta GMS PagePro 1100L mono laser printer, unfortunately there is
only Win2K driver (even does not support service pack). So it seems I cannot
use this printer for VISTA.

Any miracle/get around this?

Have you checked Minolta's website for a vista-driver for this printer? If
none is available, it looks bad. You can try your W2K-driver but don't
wonder if that doesn't work.
So, your problem is also many other user's problem. My 2 year old printer
(Sagem/Philips) is also not supported for Vista, they refuse to make a
driver.
