	On #1, Where the printer is and I am now, I see almost identical 
entries :

	On the second one, presently not the default, I see "usb" twice; 
since this is the machine *with* the printer, I should make it the 
default, right? 

	And on the others, assuming identical entries, the opposite?

	I'll either do that, or post additional replies if I find any 
surprises. (The troubleshooter did install a driver on at least one 
machine; and there are at least two reports on each machine.)
