    Is there an HP driver for the 8250 that would allow me to use the
    8250 with the Line Printer daemon? If so, how do I find it?

    When I try to set up my HP Photosmart 8250 as an LPD printer, I get
    only two "Photosmart" drivers to choose from: P1000-Gimp-Print v5.0.0
    Beta2 and P1100-Gimp-Print v5.0.0 Beta2. Either one will work, with
    some problems but neither is fully satisfactory.

    The HP software for my iMAC allows me to connect directly to the
    printer with a USB cable but not through my LAN.

    Any thoughts?
