Eh.  More or less.  I can get it to print plain text, but one it tries
to do anything like post script, it bonks out on me.

The installation of RH that I have came with a bunch of HP hacked
drivers, including one for the 710 and the 712c, which is what I have. 
The printer bombed when I tried using the 710c or the 712c driver, but
when I used the 710 driver (not c) I got it to print text.

My wife and I have decided that we need to get a photo-quality printer
anyway.  I have sworn to do some research and find one that will work
for all of our printers.  Heh.

And yeah, the 700 series is a series of winprinters, and there are no
official drivers for them.  However, you can get hobbled-together
drivers at http://www.linuxprinting.org (I think).

I think that my problem lies in the way Samba is talking to the driver
on the win98 box.  I dunno, though.  Right now I'm too tired to
investigate much further. ;-)  Tomorrow I'll hunt around on
www.samba.org and see if I can get some more information from there.
