I guess it depends on the printer. We have Novell here at work, with print
servers for all printers. However, some printers have multiple 'personalities',
like the HP LaserJet 5si, so that it also announces itself as being a
LaserWriter on Ethernet. You can just pick it up in the NetChooser on your MP
and print.

Now, not knowing what printer you're talking about, and not knowing if your IT
people leave this multiple personalities feature enabled or disabled, it's hard
to tell if you can or not.
