I have a celeron 466 with 256 Mb of memory running Win 98SE
What methods are there to run 2 printers from this one computer ie both attatch to LPT1 but only one at a time - are there devices to allow both to be attatched at the same time with just a software switch to change them? Thankyou

Try a printer switch (DSE cat number XH4500).

You cant have both connected at once because the ports not designed for it.

You can add another parallel port card, then you would have lpt1, lpt2 etc.
