G'day Baron,
   A bit of googling turns up this gem from HP.
Chances are, your Linux computer already has the software it needs, as 
all major Linux distributions regularly integrate HP Linux Imaging and 
Printing (HPLIP) into their software releases. To get the latest 
release of HPLIP, visit the HPLIP website.

    HP Linux Imaging and Printing (in English) is the primary software 
download for HP Printing solutions in Linux.
    Linux Kernel Archives (in English) contains software and drivers for 
HP computers running Linux.

   However, I would not take that as Gospel truth.  Probably written by 
HP marketing.

Can you get access to one of these?  Just take along your favourite live 
CD/DVD and try.  I see that other people have made useful suggestions, 
but a test with a live distro will quickly give the answer.
