I have a Canon i560 parallel-port printer hooked up to my Debian
unstable system. Windows/Mac drivers came with the printer. For
Linux, I had to use TurboPrint for the driver
(http://www.turboprint.de/english.html). It's about US$35.00 if you
want full functionality, but works nicely.
I don't have any experience sharing it over a network.
