good, but I don't like it :)

To quote from the above URL:

HPLIP uses <http://hpinkjet.sf.net/hpijs_readme.html>HPIJS for 
generating printer-ready-data for non-postscript print jobs. HPIJS 
has been available since 2001 as a uni-di solution. HPIJS has been 
modified to support HPLIP, but HPIJS is still backward compatible 
with existing spoolers.

And I just tried yum install hplip and came up empty.

Given what the the URL tells about this utility, I would think it 
should be part of the Centos base!
