The problem is that the Linux drivers don't work - they never have.
Even the console app doesn't work (it doesn't do any formatting or
printer control).  So, the only way to print anything to it is through
the Windows machine.  It's set up as a raw queue on the Linux side in
order to let the Windows PC process the print jobs.

Oh, how I would _love_ to do that.  I need to set the printer on fire.
It'll be better for everyone.
