How can I find out if my HP Laser 6L will work with XP? When I click on this
topic in Windows, I get taken to a page of printers but HP 6L is not listed.

Duh?

Try www.hp.com and see if HP has an XP driver.

Just a comment that the obvious place to see if a printer
has XP drivers is the printer mfg'r.

That's what I thought. The condescension is not necessary. That's what
these forums are for. I happen to have a Ph.D. but not in computers.

Hi, if you add the printer manually it is listed under HP, but I think xp
will detect once connected and install the drivers automatically....

HP 6L is an older printer. If HP does not have a newer XP driver then you
can only use the drivers that are shipped with XP.
