It still can be.

A lot depends on whether or not the PSC 750 is well-supported under
Linux; a lot also depends on whether Windows is sharing the printer via
smb or via standard lpr/lpd. If smb, you'll also have to
install/configure a minimal Samba setup on your Linux box; if standard
lpd/lpr, you shouldn't have much trouble. "apt-get install cupsys"
followed by pointing your browser to http://localhost:631/admin should
get you started.
