For years I had a Farallon Etherwave adapter connected to my 6MP and also a JetDirect connected to the parallel port.  From that I could network print from every device in my house.  I guess appletalk is no longer supported in OS X?  I can print to the JetDirect from OS 10.8 just fine.  Beaming of course works from the newton and the PB3400.  

Since Appletalk was dropped with Snow Leopard, I think you’d need to have the 6MP on a computer running Leopard or below as a print server.  You could set up print sharing and then send your print jobs through the server.
