I actually did install the home printer last night (Photosmart C6180). 
"hp-setup' ran fine, discovered the printer and installed it just as it 
did for the LJ4350 (it didn't find the correct PPD file but...).
The good news is that even though hp-toolbox won't run the Centos 
Scanner Tool works. 
It discovered the scanner correctly and I was able to operate with it as 
expected.  The scanner is also available within appropriate applications 
such as OpenOffice and the Gimp.

So maybe we don't need hp-toolbox so much after all.
