You could connect the LocalTalk to the Newton and then you should be able to
find the printer under Network Printers. But I'm not shure whether the 4ML
will work correctly with the Newton LaserWriter driver but it is quite
likely. I could successfully use at least the LaserWriter 8 driver on a Mac
to print directly to a HP LJ (don't remember the type but very likely was it
a 5ML) and could also print w/o problems to a LW personal NT and personal
320 via LocalTalk/EtherTalk.
