Has anyone ever successfully printed to an HP PSC 750 that was plugged via USB into an AirPort Express?

The HP PSC 750 (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?dlc=en&lc=en&os=219&product=57769&lang=en&cc=us&) barely works when directly plugged in via USB... it has a year-old driver (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?dlc=en&lc=en&product=57769&lang=en&cc=us&os=219#), and requires that it be set up via the "HP AiO" option, instead of "USB" in the Printer Setup Utility.

I had it working via printer sharing, where it was plugged into my old iMac G3, but it was butt-slow. And I don't want to keep the iMac just to print.

Unfortunately, according to the HP support site, this model has not been "successfully" tested with AirPort (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00035369&product=57769&dlc=en&lang=en). I can print via IP printing, but it prints the PostScript headers. ie, it's a bunch of gibberish. Has anyone figured out a way to print to it through an APE?

P.S. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...

It does show up in Printer Setup Utility under "Rendezous." However, when I select it, it says "Driver Not Installed," and I cannot click OK.
