I finally got the damned thing to work! Go to the following URL:
http://www.ihc.com.bn/Drivers/5x0022w5.exe
to download the file.
This driver is for Win 2000, so keep in mind that you may not get the full functionality of the printer?????

The driver self extracts with Winzip into a new directory C:\BJC5x00. Go to Start> Printers and Faxes, then double click Add Printer. The Wizard will start, then Select Local printer attached to this computer and make sure that Automatically Detect box is clear. Click Next. Select the port your printer is connected to. Click Next. At the Install Printer Software Screen, Click Have Disk. Browse to the new directory (C:\BJC5x00) and select OEMSETUP.INF and it should work (it did for me).
Good Luck to all and damn the manufacturers that stop supporting their products if it isn't cost effective for them to do so. What is more cost effective, retaining customers or losing them?????
