Hi Ray,
well, this look not too bad. If it may be disconnected, at least it is
there.
Start your brother with http://localhost:631 and then see whether your
printer is there and is stopped. If it is not there, try to add it. If
it is disconnected, try to restart it.

What happens?

Lastly, you are well advised to follow the manufacturers installation
instructions that are easily accessible via the web.

For the driver, go to
http://solutions.brother.com/linux/en_us/instruction_prn3.html
and follow, as appropriate

For the wrapper, go to
http://solutions.brother.com/linux/en_us/instruction_prn1a.html
and follow, as appropriate.

Whith Linux there is no substitute for reading, but there will never
ever be a need for OS reinstallation.

So once and for all, please forget about that bullshit, that you heard
from the brother techies. (I apalogize in advance, but I cannot find a
better word)

Kind regards
Eberhard

Find a better place to help you configure your printer drivers! Don't reinstall!

But in any case, you _should_ be backing up your system regularly. All
user data is in /home so that is the natural place to start for a
backup plan.

I do not know about Windows XP, but you can copy your complete system
with "sudo cp / place_to_copy".

If it is just user data that you want to back up (not programs), then
you can just copy "/home/user". You can even get creative with tar to
save space, and encrypt the data for offsite storage.

I don't think this will do a very good job.... No recursing of directories
and it will places all the files into one place_to_copy
