Brother DCP 375CW printer install on Puppy


I am just setting up a PC (dual boot from Vista) and I would like to install my Brother printer, but I don't know where to start. The CUPS help doesn't handle my queries. Any ideas/pointers much appreciated.
I should have mentioned that the printer works fine from Vista, it is a wireless machine.

puppy

Why choose to dual boot with puppy? It is not meant for that. If you don't want Linux to touch Windows, and your motherboard will boot from a USB device, install Linux (mainstream) on that, boot from it and your printer will be easier to use, I think.

Fred.
