HP LaserJet 5 & Linux

Is it possible to get a laserjet 5 to work with linux? We are toying with the idea of changing over to linux workstations and administration, but are having trouble hooking up the local printer that is on one machine. Is there an easy solution?

Thank You,

Jay

If you use the "cups" printer spooler, not only will you find that your printing suddenly becomes much easier and ten times better but you will also find a printer driver for the Laserjet 5. I would reccommend also installing the gimp-print drivers as well.
Never preceed any demonstration with anything more predictive than "watch this"
