Epson Stylus Color 740 (Ink Jet) Won't Print

I have a Gateway 2000 / Windows 98SE syatem. I connected my Epson Stylus Color 740 (ink jet) printer and successfully downloaded apprpopriate driver. 740 printer icon posted on both Control Panel and MY Computer's Print arenas.
Went to "test-print"; activated Print Window, went to Properties to make selections and gave command to "print!"
Bottom right showed 740 - LPTI image of printer in motion with "time remaining", etc.
740 printer, itself, did not activate! Message appeared on screen as follows: "There was an error writing to LPTI: for the printer Epson Stylus 740. A printer time out occurred."
What do I, as a NOVICE, need to do to correct this error? I need your expertise & help! Thank you!
