How to connect HP laserjet to macbook pro???

Hi,

Ok, I have a 13' Macbook Pro running 10.6.5.

I also have an HP Laserjet P1102 (works fine on my windows machine) connected via USB.

Now I just need my Macbook to communicate with the damn thing.

I downloaded a huge HP driver package from Apple's website, installed it (took up 700megs of space) but it still doesn't detect the printer when I go into System Preferences to ADD printer.

Are there certain steps I have to do or recite some kind of voodoo incantation to get this to work? Thanks.

Ok I'm an idiot. After downloading that huge file from Apple's site and getting no where...and after trying to find files on HP's site and getting no where... I finally found my original HP software CD that came with the printer. 5 minutes of installing later and the thing works perfectly. Go figure.
