I'll have a rummage around in my box o' goodies. I think I have a
spare parallel to eth print server which I'm not using.

I have a feeling is uses some nasty win98 only app to configure it's
IP and such but it may pickup an IP from DHCP and then you can just
check your DHCP leases or nmap your network to find it.

If I find it I'll let you know off list and we can discus costings.
