I don't know how exactly, but if I was trying to do it, I'd use some sort
of AppleTalk network monitoring tool to see how the HP printer registers
itself on the network, then see if I could find a similar sort of string
in the 6500 driver and hack the 870's string in in place of it. May not
work even then, but it'd be worth a try.
