Installing Dell Color Laser 3110cn on Mac OS X 10.7 and later

We have a growing number of Apple Macs which are now on OS X 10.7 and up. Dell have only released PowerPC installer for their drivers which doesn't run on OS X 10.7 or later. Thankfully I found a nice forum where someone (Chezloi) has found the relavent files and put them in the new relavent folders.

1. unzip and put the Dell/ folder in 'Mac HD/Library/Printers/'
2. unzip and put DellJobAccount.plugin in 'Mac HD/Library/Printers/Dell/PDEs/'
3. unzip and put DellSecurePrint.plugin in 'Mac HD/Library/Printers/Dell/PDEs/'
4. unzip and put the en.lproj/ folder in 'Mac HD/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/'

Hopefully this helps some more people. Think I'll write an installer for it.
