  1. I am trying to use my lexmark 5200 printer/scanner to print some things and I don't really want to use the software that comes with there a way I can get around to being able to print while not using this software or am I kinda screwed?

    You were screwed the very instant you decided to use a Lexmark product..

    No, you can't use non-ancient inkjets without the drivers provided by the manufacturer. You can try adding the printer using Windows and pointing to the extracted printer drivers instead of running the setup thing from Lexmark.

    Of course there is always Linux :p
