Single Answer Multiple Choice

To print to a domain-based remote network printer, you want to install printer drivers on your Windows 2000 Professional client computer. Which condition is NOT necessary for the printer driver installation?

A. You should have logged on to the network domain.
B. You should have the vendor-supplied driver disk for the printer.
C. The print server computer for the network printer must be available on the network.
D. You should ensure that printer drivers for Windows 2000 are installed on the print server on the network.

Answer:
B. You should have the vendor-supplied driver disk for the printer.

Tutorial:
The vendor-supplied driver disk containing drivers is NOT required to install printer drivers on your Windows 2000 Professional client computer. On a domain-based network, the computer that serves as a print server stores drivers for client computers. During the process of installing the printer drivers, your computer downloads the Windows 2000 drivers for the printer from the print server.

You should be logged on to the network domain to install printer drivers for a network printer. If you are not logged on, you will not be able to access the print server, and your computer will be unable to download drivers from the print server.

The print server computer must be available on the network to enable the installation of network printer drivers. If the print server is either turned off, malfunctioning, or inaccessible, then the printer drivers cannot be installed on your computer.

You should ensure that printer drivers for Windows 2000 are installed on the print server on the network. During the process of installing the network printer on the client computer, the drivers will be copied from the print server computer to the Windows 2000 client computer.
