HP DeskJet 5600 Series Basic Feature Printer Driver
FOR PARALLEL CABLE (American English)
This driver is designed for use on Windows 2000 or Windows XP computers that will be directly connected to the printer using a parallel cable.
Please note: This driver does not contain "Program Group" functionality.
Caution! The printer's Parallel cable must be unplugged before proceeding!
Do not plug in the Parallel cable until instructed to do so below!

Download the driver to the newly created c:\dj5600 folder.

For example, the English driver (5600_enu_win2k_xpinfu.exe) contains a folder named "enu". This folder was created during the extraction process after double-clicking on the downloaded "exe" file.
