I try to avoid multifuction fax/printer/scanners in windows or linux.
They seem to be cheap devices and the paper feed does not work
properly on most grabing 2 sheets at a time.

We have a Xerox multifunction device sitting in the corner collecting
dust.  It was overpriced and did not function properly.  Also, this
multifunction device is huge and ugly.

Most dot matrix printers that work in dos will work in Linux.  I think
the okidata dot matrix work in linux.

Maybe a network printer with a web interface to config the printer
would work best.  Be aware that some of these network printers require
IE to access the setup program to setup the printer.
