Yes, linksys _has_ been bought by cisco. *celebrate*  To have something 
connect to your workgroup, it has to have tcp/ip capabilities, so the 
printer by itself can't connect to the switch, but its fairly easy to 
hook it up piggy backing off of a computer running linux. I have my 
printer hooked up from my computer. All other computers on the lan can 
use it. This can be done with a combination of samba and cups. The 
windows computers are using adobe postscript as the printer driver. 
Works great. Samba was the most difficult part for me. I would attach my 
samba and cups configuration files, but I don't know if that works with 
the mailing list. Let me know if you think you they might help!
