No, this is a multifunction copier/scanner/fax/printer that
understands HP PCL 6.  If I hook it up to my old laptop's parallel
port, I can use CUPS + CUPS-o-matic's HP LaserJet 3200 driver to print
successfully.  It's just that my new Acer TM350TE laptop doesn't have
a parallel port, so I went out and bought a USB connection cable and
hooked it up to the printer's USB port.  I'm just not sure how to use
a "ugen0" device as a printer.
