      Classic and OS X are two different systems and the printer setup
      functions of each don't overlap. So setting up a printer for X won't
      give you access to it in Classic (in fact, there are always - in my
      experience - two different drivers for printers, X and OS 9/
      Classic). Here's what to do:

      While you're in WordPerfect, click on the Apple menu, go to Chooser
      and you should see your printer on the left side (if you've already
      installed OS 9 drivers; if not, install them first and then come back
      to this email).

      Double-click on the printer in the left box. It should show up
      highlighted on the right side (if it doesn't, trash the printer
      preferences in the OS 9/Classic System Folder and the printer
      extension in "Extensions" in the System Folder and reinstall the
      driver from scratch and start again).

      Once it shows up highlighted on the right side, you should also see a
      button below that says "setup." Click on it, follow the prompts and
      then close the Chooser.

      You'll then get a message telling you to change your page setup. Do
      it, from inside WP. When you do this, the printer driver's software
      should come up with some basic global setting options. Check
      whatever works for you and then close the window.

      Then try printing your document.

      Good luck.
