i have an ancient hp (b&w) laserjet 2100tn which has network server installed, and it works flawlessly in both mac and pc networks, or a mixed network, either way. i also had a hp deskjet 5850 that had both ethernet and airport network servers (only one active at network possible, not both simultaneoulsy) and that too worked like a charm.

hp network printers rock! i can't use the usb connection anymore...

Works fine with an AEBS or AEx station in the USB port. Prints for anybody who wants to use it PC or Mac. And the money you save on the non-networked HP is more than enough for a base station.
