Does <http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/manual/distros/fedora_core.html>
come of use ? I seem to recall a mail from Susmit or Indranil Das
Gupta about this resolving the query from another user, but since I
don't seem to find it on this mailing list, looks like it was on a
different list.

Susmit had recently blogged about HP 1020 and, I recall one of the
comments being to use the RPMFusion repo to obtain the driver bits as
an install-ready package.

If you do have the image file at hand, mounting it to check what it
contains is another option I'd explore.
