    Well that may be true, but I bought this cable two
    months ago.
    Plus the parport_probe drivers notices that it is an
    HP printer
    so I think some sort of two way communication is going
    on, further more, when I use it with Windows98, since
    I bought a flakey Ink head I keep getting pop ups that
    say I need to replace it.

    What I don't know is how to get the /dev/lp?
    filesystem entries to talk to the parport driver. Is
    there some sort of Major Number--Minor number--magic
    thing I don't know about?
