Laserjet 1020 in linux

Hello all, is it possible to make work the laserjet 1020 in linux?

I want to connect it to my linux box only like a print server but I am not able to do it.

I know this printer is only for windows, but I plan to print from windows clients.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Frank.
Linux?. Yes, of course.

>but I am not able to do it.

What is the issue? I have added 1020's and 1022's to a RHEL3 box and it worked fine.
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

Hi,
Thanks for your replies, I have found the solution following the link from Ivan, I had tried to install the printer without compiling the drivers. Following carefully the instructions, I have solved the problem.
