I use my Ultra 5 as an everything server (firewall, CVS, Samba, apache,
X server and of course CUPS). I have it attached to an HP1100 which the
kernel autodetects properly. It works fine, the only issue is that the
priner is a little slow, which I suspect is because CUPS/Ghostscript is
sending the page as a bitmap instead of as PCL.
My kernel is 2.4.21-rc3.
The relevant section of my config follows. Don't forget to modprobe
parport_pc, parport and lp.
