People say to use arp -s, but that never worked for me. I had better
success using a sniffer (ethereal), like Jan-Benedict suggests, and
waiting a bit (one hour has always been enough). Or, you may setup a
dhcp server, watch its log, reboot the print server and hope it'll try
to get a dhcp address.

Good luck!
