Installing Laserjet 6P driver on Windows 7 (64-bit)

Where do I find the printer driver for my Laserjet 6P printer that works with Windows 7? The HP website says that older drivers will work under Win7, but when I download them and search them, the Add printer utility says no drivers are found.

For the benefit of anyone else who experiences the same problem, by default a fresh install of Windows 7 only shows a subset of current printer drivers.  To get 6P to appear, when choosing the printer, click the Windows Update button and wait 5 minutes or so.  Then you'll get a list of Microsoft supported printer drivers for all of time.

Alternatively go here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Hardware&p=HP%20Las...
