To echo midnighter, I too had a Flawless Victory while installing my HP C6300 all-in-one, over my 802.11g LAN. Yeah, Wireless.
I'm also using LM-8 Helena, main ed., Gnome, and mine's on a 3 year old Toshiba.
Like the man said, it went something like this:
Me: "this'll prolly take a while. Hope I have the right driver disk..."
Menu->Admin.->Printing. Click button: [New]
Helena asks: "Is.. this your card?"
Me: *peers within 'Network Printers'* "Why yes it is!"
Helena: "Would you.. like to print a test page?"
Me: *retrieves Jaw from carpet* "Yes, yes I would. Thank you."
Me: *reads page* "What the... 'Finish him'??"
*(Sound effects and anthropomorphism added for dramatic effect on a closed course by professional printer drivers.
No sysadmins or Microsheep were harmed in the making of this narrative. DO try this at home, it's a treat.)
