Thanks TerryP
I did as you said and cups starts and I can "see" the printer now. When I go through to install it as a windows smb printer with the laserjet pcl driver it asks me to select a "ppd" file. I don't know what that is but having seached my system and on a hunch my wifes xp system the only ones around here are in .cab windows files. Clues of any kind would be appreciated.

PS - I tried setting it up as generic, it still asks for the ppd file. I canceled it at that point and printed a test page. Yeah, that was bad. One line of text. 5-6 blank pages. Thanks again.
I Saw Vista, I beta tested 7, and so, I responded to my findings in the logical manner. I installed BSD, nuf-said
