Windows 7 and Linksys wireless print server

\015 Please help - I am not that technically inclined!!\015\012 I have a Linksys wireless print server that works fine with my HP laptop ( running XP). I just got a new laptop with Windows 7 and it will not let me use the installation disk for the wireless server. I know that Windows 7 apparently does not need "driver disks " for installation, but I am not sure what to do. I installed the printer as a local printer and it works fine that way, so I know that the printer does not have a compatibility problem.I tried to find "find the wireless device, but that did not seem to work either. My home network runs fine and I have added the new computer with no problem, but I am now stuck.\015\012 Again let me repeat, I have limited technical capabilities, but I am persistant, I just need some steps to follow if anyone can help me!!\015\012THanks!\015
