Based on what I remember of this, the real problem is that the serial
driver on 68k Macs isn't reliable at high speeds. It tends to drop
characters sometimes if you run at the edge of the performance of
the machine. Generally the printer will require a particular speed,
and often times it's one thats too fast to run properly. Other than
that, any printer that runs in Linux at all should work.
