I am a pretty quick learner, but still not very fluent in Linux.
I purchased a Maxtor Shared Storage Plus (MSS), and have installed the OpenMSS firmware, which basically gives me Telnet/SSH access to the Linux machine inside (http://www.openmss.org)
The box itself doesn't compile anything, but a friendly guy on the OpenMSS forum has compiled the driver for me (our conversation is at http://www.openmss.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=2514#2514
). I've also read the posts in as much depth as I can at another forum (http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=HP-LaserJet_1000), which went into pretty good depth but unfortunately wasn't too useful for my MSS.
So I've extracted the tarball to my /opt/etc directory, and can plug the printer into one of the USB ports at the back of the MSS. But from there I don't know what to do.
I can't run a make command (but I'm assuming the guy at the forum did all that, so I shouldn't need to). He has also downloaded the firmware for my LaserJet 1000 (he called it sihp1000.img and put it in the foo2zjs directory for me)
Do you have any suggestions for how I would install the printer and the firmware hotplug from here? I hope I'm not asking for too much, but actual verbatim commands that I can use in SSH would be the most helpful.
Thanks very much
