Wow, that's pretty old.  I think rpmforge has newer, but regardless, I
wound up installing from source.  The hplip page for CentOS is a bit off
(dated, I imagine), I have my own page on it here.  (I should add that
it works quite well for me, version 3.9.8 or so.  Haven't checked for
updates since then, as this does all I need.
