Could someone tell me the best way to connect a printer?

Should I use USB or a parallel cable?

Either way, but USB will probably be better.

BUT, if you use USB, remember to install the drivers BEFORE you plug the printer in.

Some or probably most USB printers, wont work properly, if you install the drivers, WHILE the printer is plugged into the USB port

And turned on.

The USB is preferable, just make sure you install the driver before plugging the printer in.

As long as your PC has both options, either cable will work fine though.

Edit - Snap Speedy!

Generally the printer dictates that as most only have one or the other.
