I had this foo2hp printer working until I upgraded my HD and the printing doesn't work anymore. At least I think that's when it stopped working. Anyhow, foo2hp isn't in the driver list anymore.

It works great for me, no linux needed, just followed the instructions in the documentation and then connected using SAMBA.

The device URI (SAMBA address) for my printer on the Dell is smb://dell:139/ColorLaser . I'm using OS X Leopard
