I took a non-supported printer and hooked it up to a
Netgear PS121 print server I picked up on ebay.  The PS121
is a little box with a USB plug on one side and an RJ45
on the other.  In system-config-printer it looks like a
networked Unix LPD printer.  I had to load a special LPD
driver to use it on a windows box, but it worked correctly
with my FC4 box once I figure out that the queue name was P1. 

I like this solution as the printer is network available without
having to make sure that the correct machine is powered up.
