ISSUE: What alternate printer drivers are available for the HP LaserJet 2100 printer?

If the HP LaserJet 2100 PCL5e driver option cannot be installed, install the alternate driver provided in the following: Alternate driver choice: HP LaserJet 4 Plus printer, or if available, HP LaserJet 6P printer.
NOTE: The HP LaserJet 2100 printers' are backward compatible and should work with most standard HP LaserJet drivers. Using a different driver will remove access to some product features.
