Ah, this is an entirely different situation. As a home printer, you will have to do the imposition yourself. There are a couple ways to do this. I would recommend using Acrobat (full version, not reader) and then manually moving pages around to match the pattern you need (for instance, in a 20 page section, 20 and 1 appear on the first sheet, with 2 and 19 on the back.)

What page size are you aiming for? 7x8.5 is the largest you will be able to go on that printer, if you are printing four pages on a sheet (legal paper). Acrobat has the ability to print two pages to a sheet, and only specified numbers of sheets, so you should be able to arrange the pages so that you and print the 20,1,2,19 combination mentioned above.

I hope you have a stapler with a throat long enough to staple the finished pages together.

@donmcc: Yeah, I found out that letter size is the largest format I can print on with this printer, and that's fine. I do have a pretty good stapler, and I'll check out Acrobat. Thanks!
