I've had good success with networked samsung printers, like the ML2xxx 
and ML3xxx series. Plug it in, give it say 30 seconds to begin Service 
Discovery broadcasts, and then hit "detect new printers".

There *is* a cd with a bash script that will download some tools, stuff 
like reading the number of copies and toner level, but you don't really 
need it to get started.
