I'll have a Brother HL-2040 times established under Win98 SE. When the HL-2140 is the successor, then maybe do the printer of the HL-2040 from here:
I hope you know how to install a printer driver under Windows even against the will of Windows. But perhaps it is also directly.
The printer is said to also PCL 5e can. Installed 'any PCL 5e compatible driver. You can download it from HP 1998 PCL Printer Driver Windows Download. Ask me not only to the model. HP Laserjet 4x, 5x are all PCL printers. You may then have not the full resolution.
Printers on the network share somewhere does not work on Windows so, because you need a Win98 driver for it still requires the Windows, if you have found the network printer. One can tinker with Linux which by connecting the printer locally to the outside but there is a postscript printer. But is not better / easier than second variant
Purchase 'nen another printer or print or other OS' in a file / .pdf or whatever
If you're good, maybe even find a generic PCL driver for Win98, the PPDs eats. Then it could be with a PPD (configuration data sample) from here.
Something will find it. But that the printer has no driver support so that Win98 and that's that way on the Brother site. One need not then complain if the printer does not offer a driver. There might even be commercial $ (= $) printer driver, the upgrade for this money under Win98.
