Hi Anne,
hplip claims to need it:
[roger at rwells-rh ~]$ sudo hp-check
warning: python-dbus not installed.

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.9.2)
Dependency/Version Check Utility ver. 14.1

and even though it is installed:
[roger at rwells-rh ~]$ sudo yum install dbus-python
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package dbus-python-0.70-7.el5.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

hplip won't run because it thinks it isn't

recall our thread on this a while back.
Sorry to beat a dead horse.
