Color works great. Followed all the directions. Set up the two spools. One is monochrome, the other is color. Always prints in color on both spools. Used CUPS page to try to change it. I'm sending jobs over SAMBA from Mac OS X 10.5 to a shared HP1600 on a windows XP machine. What could possibly be wrong?

What does http://localhost:631 say for both printer queues?

I rebooted the computer and all works fine now. I thought that was really weird. So weird in fact that I wonder if I was imagining things, but nope, I distinctly remember printing B&W...and it came out in color. Tried it again...still color...and again.

It has always said "monochrome" for the B&W spool and "color" for the color spool at the localhost 631. Rebooted the next morning just to take good care of my computer, and noticed later that the printing was working right. Thanks! I really appreciate all you've done to make this available.
