it came out of the wordwork

Ignorance is blintz
Or paperweights the size of a desk....

We have, for various strange and wondrous reasons, come into possession of a color laser printer. Said laser printer says:

System Requirements Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Apple MacOS 9.0 or later, Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000, Apple MacOS X 10.2 or later, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Itanium, Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Apple MacOS X on Intel 10.4.4 or later

We have looked for drivers for linux... no PPD for this oki cs5800dn and no sign, other than the fact that the thing runs on MAC OS derived from Free BSD derived form Unix .. that it ought to run Linux. But more and more of our work is being done on Linux... And we moved Sharon's room all around, since this was to replace Sharon's now defunct Lexmark. Is it wrong of me to think that because it'll run on a Mac that there's hope for Linux?


Anyone out there write printer drivers?
