    Two _printers_? I can only guess that the DEClaser 1800 does IEEE
    1284.3 daisy-chaining, in which case the way things are structured
    right now it would take a (simple) new device driver and some new
    device nodes to get it going.

    Does the manual say about any special drivers that you might need to
    get it going (on any operating systems)?

    It probably just uses the DEC, right?
