I had to install the latest HPLIP software to support my Dad's OfficeJet 
6500-series. It's very important to first un-install the stock RPM that 
comes with CentOS 5. It's not hard to install the new one, and I've got 
to give HP credit here. They're doing a bang-up job of supporting their 
devices with Free Software.
