Depends. If you've got HP printers with JetDirect cards, all you'll need
to do is enable EtherTalk on the printers and you're set. If you're using
dedicated print servers (=those little boxes that connect parallel
printers to hthe network) it should be possible on most Intel/HP boxes as
well. If you're using only Novell print servers (with the printers
connected directly to the print server) then you're outta luck.
