Windows 98 and Canon pixma 1800

Windows 98 and Canon pixma 1800

A friend has bought a Canon pixma 1800 printer.  Her computer is running Windows 98.  When I attempted to install the software on the CD, it complained that The CD-ROM cannot be used with the current operating system.

Has anyone got a pixma 1800 to work under Windows 98?

Best you can do is try the canon site for a driver.
They may have a basic pcl driver for win98.

Thank you Michael52x.  After looking at the Canon site, I phoned their technical support people who promised a reply within 3 working days.  I was hoping that someone on Tek-Tips might have already been down this road.  I'll report back next week on the Canon response.

Unfortunately, this printer is not compatible with Windows 98...No drivers are available.  Sorry.

Thank you PCBlondie.  

Canon haven't yet replied to me but your response seems to be pretty certain about the situation.
