Hi Jim,

thanks a lot for that! I'm glad to say that it finally works! I just have
one question: WHY? Presumably, this isn't really a Samba issue, but a driver
related one?

I'd look on the HP Support site for note on using
this printer on a network-you might have to use
something like the DJ550C driver, since it isn't
connected to a Windows PC's LPT.
