    Recommend a Linux Printer

    in one of my schools I've a load of orig 700 EEEPCs runnng Linux and I've an HP2605N laser that does postscript and thats what they print to.

    Could anyone recommend an alternative colour printer to replace it please as its prob not going to run for much longer.

    I'd prefer if the printer was capable of being printed to direct from the EEEPCs as if I try and print via a W2k3 server - the pupils keep on being asked for a password and I've never managed to sort that out

    (I don't run AD or LDAP or anything you see )
