[clug] Printer recommendations

I have the multifunction version of the Samsung CLP-300.  Its functions and 
OSD work quite well via the binary drivers from Samsung.  It is not a 
postscript device.

The CLP-350N is postscript and has a different, more economical print engine, 
but is much more expensive.

Other low cost linux-compatible printers include the Brother 2060/2160, 
most of the Samsung ML series and Samsung SCX4200 multifunction.

Be certain to check openprinting.org first.
